Well, I guess it is the same, in as much as both units interface PS2 keyboards to the 64/128. However, buying the parts and shipping a prototype completed kit to a reviewer in Germany is not cheap, considering the HW. I can do it, but I really want the first units to go to folks who can reflash them when folks find bugs. Ideas? > > It seems he now wants a test sample to write a test report for his > magazine.

It's a bummer he (and you) could not get the original C=Key code working, but such is fine. Shame on me for spending so much time on this project and not getting it done.
