    I have one of those.. got it for my old cellphone.... saw it laying there the other day
    and wondered if it would be compatible in any form....

    That would be awesome if there was some way to convert it to ps2 or serial or so...

    I have no insight to offer.. but I'll be listening to what you find

    now switching to a microATX board. setting up now. will have to wait a short while before starting work on the chatboard.

    how's your own project?

    Yes I used Serial interface and you guessed right Girder and Serial plugin. The initializion sequence is done also with girder. Here is a good link alltough I used a MAX232 IC the pinout was a little different but I still managed to stuff it inside the chatboard (there is only the cable coming out) https://securehost34.hrwebservices.n...sonChatBoardPC

    I'll post the serial config file and some key config file for girder later on. Its not totally complete yet but have been enough for me. It's the bomb when using GPS you can actually write the place where you wanna go. Later...
