Re: PS2 KEYBOARD INTERFACE HOUSING

Nice job!

I should add that this is for the first version of the board. The later version (that has the name Pluggy McPlugface on it) is of a different size.

Re: First gigatron clone

Nice work, tocksin!

Yes - I want one too :-)
Obviously, we are already working on the PS/2 interface so that is an affordable way to attach a keyboard. But this PCB looks quite nice as it is!

Re: Double your RAM:

Thanks for the write-up. I've doubled my RAM as well. I sacrificed a resistor to get two pieces of wire. I bent one to connect pins 2, 30 and 32 on the bottom of the socket. I bent the other to connect A15 to pin 31. The downside is that if I want to swap RAM, I need a soldering iron. ramdouble1.jpg...

Re: PS/2 keyboard hookup with microcontroller

Cool. I just built my own. I found some old serial plugs (DB9-RJ45) of which I sacrifised one. I just added some sugru to fill the small gap next to the PS/2 connector and it looks pretty nice.
