You to cheap?????? A LED costs nothing: +-USD$0.1
But sure, you can use a LED from an old PC, or whatever machine you find. A LED is a LED (well, not exactly, there are diff. but for this use, it's all the same)

RE: make a led blink everytime you get a msg
I think people would like a thing that makes leds blink, but they probably don't want to create an external led. Keyboard leds are actually attract much attention (are quite bright, at least mine are).
But it would be useful for the times people work fullscreen.

and is it an external program or a plugin??
(I can't open the file because I miss some .ocx file)

RE: make a led blink everytime you get a msg
BTW: be carefull with flashing the keyboard leds! If you change the status of the led, the status of numlock/capslock/scrolllock will also change! This can be annoying when someone is typing a msg.
Also when you change the status, be sure to do it the right way. I've seen many programs that changed the status and if you press on eg. numlock nothing happens (with the leds)....

And for these reasons I don't like it when a program uses keyboard leds... (And I'm certainly not alone with this)
