Just a heads-up, I finally got around to hooking it up - and it works just
fine on -5V. I'm not inclined to try -12V just in case it cooks, but I
suppose it's possible that it just needs some -ve voltage "more than x" and
so -12V is perfectly acceptable, too. Or maybe I just got lucky and this IC
is happy on -5V where some might not be.
I'm pretty happy that it's alive, anyway. I need to figure out what's going
on with the spacebar (it currently doesn't sit level), but time to figure
out some frankenproject for it!
