    Should just be able to remove it from the board. Or not solder it on in the first place if building from scratch. Or you could look for some with a smaller light output if they're too bright for you.
    Oh yeah, like uke said, you wouldn't need the resistors either.

    Exactly right.
    If you look you will always see a status LED to be paired with a dropping resistor to bring down the current so the led doesn't burn out.
    These can be omitted in almost all cases or replaced with a led that has a lower lumen rating.
    This is true of almost all boards you encounter.

    My boards arrived today. Can't wait to get ahold of all the components.
    Anyone happen to build the BOMS from Arrow.com that they would be willing to share.

    Thanks,
    Shawn
