I hadn't started yet, and saw a mail from Tomasz that he's already
started. Like he mentioned in his mail, he's having some problem since
vivi is a virtual driver. We'll discuss potential solutions soon.

Unfortunately I couldn't clearly understand from his description about
the connector; I can send him a couple of pics of how it should fit,
and hopefully that'd be that.
For the record: I guess there are total 3 parts - 1. connector to be
soldered onto the board, 2. the adapter PCB, and 3. the sensor itself.
I will send the pics to him directly.
