I think all the business keyboards already had a shift lock key, didn't they? I just had some fun replacing a broken shift lock switch on one of my keyboards, so I'm no stranger to the switch and its wiring. Philip's experiments with the alternate Katakana characters just got me wondering if there was an easy way to lock it in shifted mode in software without having to write a resident program. mike ******************************** ---------- From: William Levak[SMTP:firstname.lastname@example.org] Sent: Thursday, November 26, 2009 12:12 AM To: email@example.com Subject: RE: PET 2001 Fix....WAS: Will pay good money for NON working PET2001motherboard.

On the graphic PET keyboard the shift keys are between lines 15 & 6 and 15 & 1 on the keyboard connector. On the business keyboard they are between 15 & 7 and 15 & 1. If you wrap wire around the keyboard connector pins, and then plug the keyboard connector on top of them, you should get good enough contact for a switch to work. email@example.com SDF Public Access UNIX System - http://sdf.lonestar.org Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing listReceived on 2009-11-26 06:00:24
