Just thought id post another picture of my setup.  One thing I did was remove the chip all together from the cartridge, solder 2 wires to each contact of the chip and connect it to a momentary push button. (see the black button to the right of the filament platform.  THe makes it easy to "Insert" and "remove" the cartridges and has made this hack an absolute pleasure.  Actually this was born out of necessity.  All the pushing in and pulling out of cartridges eventually screwed the chip contacts in the filament bay.  Im glad it did though. Its sooo much easier this way.
