Re: Mac HASP keys

This was the first thing I had to do when I got a G4. I got a Griffin
technology iMate - it is a USB to ADB adaptor. Extension for it is on
their web site http://griffintechnology.com, but I suggest not using the
beta one, it caused me to lose the dongle (and all contents of IDL
session) several times. But with their official release extension it
works like a charm.
After a quick look I found it on the web at MacZone.com for $40 at
. Maybe you can find it for even less than that.
Hope this helps.
