Keyboard conversions

I remember back in the day this was a relatively popular hack, but
it required a converter box since the electronics in an Amiga
keyboard aren't the same as those of a PC. I think a couple of the
Amiga magazines had articles on how to do it, and there were a
couple of commercial adapter boxes available.
