For a displaywriter, you can use the model F controller as it has the same number of rows and columns. You just need to adapt it (rewire the pins).

As soon as lot_lizard is asking me for the money I will close the form here, invoice you all and send him the money.

I will be ordering a good bunch more anyway so a few unpaid invoices aren't gonna break me ...

If I submit a new form with added solenoid driver will the invoice have shipping charges as I have already paid for 1 xwhatsit and shipping?

[SPAM]

Care to switch to another controller? 1000 USB reports per second, 7kHz scan rate (3.5kHz for buckling spring), better noise immunity, buckling spring support on the same hardware!
Cheap*!

*) not as cheap as buckling spring version - but still. That huge blue connector is probably the most expensive part.

Disclosure:
DOES NOT support solenoid driver (I don't have hardware to test and problems, if any, will be with electrical noise generated by driver and it's very inductive load) - but has the expansion header I now use for debugging purposes and there's lots of free space in flash to add such support. Easy.
DOES NOT support macros - I'm building the configuration utility built for non-windows systems instead. Support is less trivial to add, but far from impossible.

Well.. there's uncertainty, of course - as with everything new.
But the point was, actually, to point to the MF thread which will have voting on this soon. I just forgot to actually point there. Fixing!
Not trying to make any money on this (though in my current situation I probably should! :)).
Is non-commercial spam still spam? :)

Update Wodan, may be you'll make a poll? After all, the difference will be in 1 passive adapter. Because of the controller size may be there will even be a single adapter for 5251 and DisplayWriter.

I have also modified my order. I had paid for a couple of items with the MF group buy, and now I've changed the quantity of these items.

I think I didn't actually fill in the form earlier, just posted a response here :p . As I'm a bit late to the whole thing I'm not sure what the status of this is at the moment?
