Personally I don't like powering my Pi via gpio pins or the same PSU as the leds.
You may get voltage fluctuations depending on how well regulated the PSU is when the leds go from very dark to very bright.
If you are messing with the leds and screw something up, your Pi crashes and might corrupt the card
If you accidentally put power into the wrong gpio, bye bye Pi.
In that cause, I'll keep it like it is.
You and the other developers have done a real great job, penfold42! Thanks for that.
I'll put my own instructions in a post for other newbies to read.
Any suggestions regarding the position of the leds?
