      Actually I do have one of these "Bitknitter" boxes and the software to
      go with it. It just happened to come with my 930. IIRC, the software is
      for the Amiga, so I may need to use an emulator to try it out.

      It has a connection (9-pin din) for the computer and two devices (8-pin
      header), likely the knitting machine serial port and optical port.

      I opened it up at some point and looked at it... it has two chips
      covered in some kind of glue to prevent reverse engineering I suppose.

      Anyone know how to remove that stuff?
