Well, I got another fan running on a 9v adapter and it's running backwards too. So you might have something there, Navy.

Anyhow, I'm really just screwing around. I have this huge tub of old electronics crap and I decided I was going to try to make something out of...nothing pretty much lol. I'm thinking I might be able to set 'em up around my monitor to give me some wind while I'm pwning n00bz.

Yeah, I should really be doing schoolwork. :D

LoL I thought so too, but with the one fan that only has two wires, it either goes backwards or just doesn't work at all.

The second fan has a black, red, and yellow, (and I didn't mess with the yellow), but it either goes backwards or just doesn't work at all...

So, I'm leaning towards some kind of current reversal (is that even a real term?) as per Navy's explanation.

Well, I guess it's back to the Nietzsche now. At least now I've got some wind flowing through my silky locks 'o' gold.

The fan is not running backwards. It is your reality that has changed and "There is no spoon."...talker. :worry:

:worry: OOOh, OOOh, I'm have one of the pictures with a headache, you know, a, um, oh yea, idea. :rofl_mini:
what happens if you left the wires connected so the fan spun backwards, but the turned the fan around, wouldn't it then blow in the opposite direction
