the ugley soldered ribbon cables on the Bondwell-16 gone.. just need to make the leads now.. alot better idea i think. now i can unplug the drives with out taking the controller off as well..

now i have to check all the non working keys on the Bondwell-14 to see what i can do to selvage them.. fingers crossed.. and to make the new fdd/hdd cables.
