RIP kbfirmware.com

A once popular tool has been shut down due to the lack of users. RIP, kbfirmware.com: 9 January 2017 - 13 March 2021 (git). Sent by -George- (source).

Back in 2018, this tool helped me to breath life into my first Pro Micro and later to visualize the matrix for my first handwired projects, e.g the Storm46.
