Thank you very much! Altough I'm not a noob, I always take pleasure by reading noob-proof tutorials, since there is always something to learn ;)

I'd say it depends on your LED, but in my case it was as the diagram: brown-black-red-gold -> 1k +-5%

HTH

PS.- I've just seen this which makes me really happy to see that people liked my idea :D

Do I have to retain a 5V tension on GPIO23 ? I have a yellow LED 2V- 25mA so I guess a 100 ohm resistance.
