I watch the list with little to contribute  because unfortunately my
background is not in IT or similar.  I'm really just a fan a of vintage
computers and learn a good amount from this listserve.

I recently traveled to Brooklyn to the Gowanus eReycling center that is
closing.  This was the place mentioned in previous posts.  It was an
excellent experience for my son and I.

I have a few question I hope someone might be able to help with.

1.  I got a working KayPro 2x but I did not get the phone-like cable that
connects the keyboard to the main unit.  I see I can buy one on eBay for
$15 but wanted to know if there were any other work arounds or if someone
is selling one.

2.  I got a small piece (picture attached) that apparently plugs into the
C64 port 2.  It is labeled "Petspeed" which is apparently some sort of
BASIC assembler.  I am hesitant to plug it in without knowing more. Any
help with understanding what this is and how it works?

3.  If you want to check out the video of our trip to Brooklyn and see what
we found go to https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ogZhSaOk-Cs&t=1s
