    What is the best way to mount the SNES connectors to the PIE case? In the picture it looks like Florian is using some sort of epoxy, but that seems a bit flimsy for the type of abuse the connectors would take from people inserting and removing controllers.

    Also what is the most robust method of attaching the ribbon cables from the GPIO ribbon to the SNES connectors? soldering them on directly seems like it would not last. There must be a board that can be purchased for attaching the connectors to.

    Florian you should sell a board that fits directly underneath the connectors for a direct solder!, and then another header connector for the other end of the ribbon cable.
