I was at my local boot fair today (first of the year). It's on a farm so Horses, Ducks & Guinea Fowl roam around (I'm in outer London BTW).

Muddy shoes but sadly no retro. Saw a SNES & a tiny odd analogue oscilloscope (tempted!) but that's about it.

Last year I picked up a C64 with datasette & 2 1541's for 30 quid. I want more of that!

Alternatively, you can also use a parallel signal for switching.
My idea behind using a serial signal .. none is using modems these days.
If you prefer parallel switching, read the documents.
If you own a newer version from highpuff with my latest cia-adapter (the one with pcb) you will find a unused pin for the 3-wire-cable.
It provides the par.-signal … desolder the ser.-cable and solder it to the par.pin. Uninstall switchcontrol Serial and install the par-Version.

v1.1 is the stable one
v1.2 is slow and experimental
