Subject: Re: polaris with bad ribbon wires for sale

any timeline on that new switches idea ? ---maybe then i wont sell the polaris--- [but i have a guy who wants it for ALL the chips already calling me.] the thing would be really fine if i could hook up those control panels, but now there is nothing left to try to connect to-- would the part be a whole new 'stick on' touch pad with actual WIRES coming off it?
