I like blue...and pink, turquoise, orange.
I have problems with bright LED's so the current limiting resistor is essential.
I have some HE blue LED's and I limit some with a 470K resistor.
Starves the LED so much that just the center glows and is barely
visible unless I look directly at it. Reminiscent of a lamp (but not
as bright).

Anybody using the VCC frosted lenses?
Easier on the eyes and WOW do the colors look pretty damn cool!
