"Jaycar has noticed a substantial increase in sales of the KC5361 Smart Card Programmer kit & ZZ8800 Programmable Gold Wafer Card. We strongly suspect that this maybe due to persons unknown some how using these products to make unlawfully generated access codes for the latest cable T.V. set top boxes. We also wish to advise that we discourage this activity. For those legitimate users, the KC5361 Programmer kit & ZZ8800 Smart card are back in stock. Once again please be reminded that we cannot accept any responsibility for the use of these devices in other than legitimate activities."

LOL... too many geekzoners buying them perhaps? I suspect this is a message which has copied over from the ozzie website, since there's still only one Cable TV set top box

Nice, I didnt know it could be used for things like that ZollyMonsta.

If there are popper fittings there Gareth41 then use those, if you need a quick cheap function, kitchen bag ties or something like that. Hot electric glue guns also got for sticking stuff on.

That message has been on their website for quite a number of years if I remember right so their statement really means nothing

Here is how Silicon Chip did it:

From the article: "This view shows how the PC board is fitted to a standard 3.5-inch to 5.25-inch drive mounting kit. We cut down an old 5.25-inch drive blanking plate to fill the hole in the front of the adapter."

So just need to find yourself a 5.25" to 3.5" adapter to match the style of your case, cut a slot in the face and your're all set. Looks the board sits neatly in the 3.5" section.

Hope this helps.
