[NTLK] overclocking the MP2x00

I had an old flash card that no longer worked. It was a Pretec that had a built-in battery that recharged when inserted into a PCMCIA slot. Once the battery died, the card was useless...so I opened it up and salvaged the switch.

Where did you get the switch?  I have had no success.
