Re: SCSI bus activity LED?

I'm interested in the possibility of connecting the TT030's SCSI bus

Are you sure this will work? It looks to me, this thing is to connect
SCSI devices to an iSCSI initiator. I would think the bridge needs to
be an initiator to connect to iSCSI storage.
At the current time these bridges are quite expensive, but prices
will eventually fall.
There are some advantages to this approach:
- No heat / noise issues with drives
- Disks can be swapped out virtually
- Transparent backups
The one issue with an external iSCSI bridge would be that there
would be no drive light on the Atari itself. Maybe this is a minor
issue, but for me it's all about the authenticity. =) I did some
quick searching and I couldn't find a quick solution. Anyone know
of a SCSI device that provides bus activity LED pins?
You could rip the LED out of the ATTO and connect the sockets to the
TT-LED, if you can live with it being on when there is no activity.
Or glue some reversing logic to that.
