That's the tech explanation I was waiting for!
I got to most of these things myself, but I wanted confirmation. I know that most users have used MD pads for ages
on their Amigas without damage, while some had reported damaged C64s.
I really don't like modifying controllers I also intend to use for something else, so I'll keep risking it
I suppose nothing really uses pin 5...
Now enough off-topic or Jens will punish us
