Yes, shouldn't be too tricky.

IIRC the Sirius User Group were talking about trying to get permission to
duplicate the new floppy controller but I don't think they pursued the project.
After all they'd probably only sell a few boards to club members, and how many

and renew old acquaintances; it's been about 5 years since I had any real
contact with them now.
