One has 3 slots and a fuse and is marked as 'Cardboard/3'. It must be a
cheaper model than the 3s. The other one (made by PTI) has 3 slots, 3
slide switches, and a fuse. I neither one has a reset button. I can see
That the one with the switches should allow selection of which cartridge
to use, but it is not clear to me how the Cardboard/3 is supposed to work.
There must be some real voodoo needed to get some sets of carts to work

Do you have any information about the Cardboard/3?
