Unable to locate this blink program....
One of the main issues of this program is that it has such a generic name. There was a kernel driver by this name that was removed because it was buggy and problematic. I however am not using a distro so maybe the programs is listed somewhere in a respoistory but a google search turns up no sources or anything for it. If anyone is following this article maybe you can post sources for it or post a location for the sources. If nothing gets posted I may consider writing something small in c if its even possible.

I'm using fedora 12, but I can't seem to find blink in any packages.
Any suggestions?
