Default DIY rollup keyboard

Here's a little guide on how to make your own rollup keyboard out of a crappy stock keyboard from the gateway you bought before you had a clue about computers. Who hasn't got a couple of these clunkers in their closet to tear apart? And it wouldn't be hard to make it alot prettier than their example: try some nicer key labels, slather some liquid latex on to coat them, and encase the little circuit board in resin. Might try it when I get a spare day

Done it about a year ago. It donest work very well. The buttons are hard to press and you need to hit the buttons in exactly the right place.
