And it doesn't help if you're trying to connect to a mobo pin header. :) But
it's still a useful device. The nice thing about the circuit I posted is
that it can draw power from that same pin header. They usually provide +5V,
GND, and DATA. Parts cost is about $8, shipping can kill you though. I was
ordering some other stuff anyway, so I just added those parts while I was at
