Btw.: What is the final opinion about the ominous interior parts of the dummy? If I could omit them I would probably make the dummies from wood. In can't find the original Canon dummy, but if you want me to measure something on the board, I have a voltmeter.
Hmmm. I am not sure whether my Multimeter has such "buzzer" mode, at least a search in the manual does not find "buzzer".
Both. But it's a two step hack. You mask the door switch in kbd.c and you add a bit of code in boot.c. The boot.c part is something reyalp discovered, I'll see if I can find that post.Update : http://chdk.setepontos.com/index.php?topic=5744.msg56367#msg56367
In this case, I wouldn't loose any sleep over the cheaper solution.

One question then: At the moment I have those 50 power supplies. Would it be of advantage to replace them with a single stabilized one? I was always thinking about that, because it would make the whole rig somewhat less heavy and a little smaller too. And also it seems that the 50 power supplies produce something that I know as "potential", don't know if this is the right word for that in english too.
This "potential" however, so I was told, is produced by little building differences between the 50 power supplies, and it resulted in the fact that I had to ground the complete rig when once shooting on a wet meadow, because I could not touch it otherwise, I got some unpleasant electric shocks, not really threatening, but enough I did not want to work with it. As soon as the whole thing was grounded into the meadow the phenomenon was gone.
Now if the 50 supplies really are the reason for these electric shocks, then I could omit the duty to have a ground after having them replaced, right?
On the other hand the fact that having 50 different supplies could be somewhat safer. If one supply fails, I have four spare. If the "one for all"-supply fails, I am done. What would you suggest? Would you replace the 50 supplies or should I keep them?
