What does the nipple need to work?

<< < (2/3) > >>

Has anyone ever swapped a real trackpoint into a EnduraPro?

no, but now you're giving me the itch to :D

It needs to be massaged and to feel comfortable, don't pressure her too much or she won't lactate.

i believe this is how it's wired up on all the modern lenovos as well. the flex cable ends in a ZIF, but if someone were to reverse engineer it, i bet interfacing with it and providing a usb mouse could be engineered into a gp micro platform like the teensy or arduino boards..

Thanks. It is exactly the reverse engineering that I am unable to do, but I could solder most anything. So there is no chance of buying, for instance, the keyboard that Zvika links to and poaching its internals? Actually, that keyboard looks perfect. If I could mod that with reduced-spring Key Blues, I think that i would have the perfect buttonplank. And that _is_ a mod that I am capable of. Hmmm.... that thing is a third of the price of the Race I just bought.

well, it depends on what the internals look like. i've had a couple of those in my time, but unfortunately i gave them all away.
