Call me a Luddite. Several years ago I bought the /5 and having little or no money in my purse, patched, repaired and cajoled the stock wiring harness-- never mind how long precisely-- til it was about to give up the ghost in majick smoke a couple of years ago and I replaced to whole harness for the princely sum of $60, US, before becoming an orphan.
A blackbox ain't worth it... aye, no.

Luddite. Not just a philosophy, a way of life...
