Can't wait to see that baby working on USB!

Those were the times.....metal case, robust switches and cables, a printed guide under a flipable cover.  :thumb:
I wish that kind of quality would have a comeback.

And then you look at what's included with PCs those days. We ordered new Fujitsu machines for our staff, they got keyboards you can twist several centimeters with bare hands...flat scissor like switches, so horrible to type on.
