It never fails; you want to upgrade your aging PC, but you still need that archaic RS-232C serial port for controlling your Parallax Boe-Bot, using that serial mouse, getting online via your trusted Hayes ACCURA V.90 modem, and, even, programming your Pfaff 2140 sewing machine. Apple Boot Camp enlistees can run into a similar RS-232C port quagmire using an older Windows app on a MacBook Air. Now, a new USB to RS-232C converter plug from SparkFun Electronics might be your upgrade answer. Able to support both Windows and Mac platforms, this $12.95 plug can give any modern PC a flashback to the ports of the past. According to a helpful tip posted on the SparkFun Electronics Web site, you might have to modify this converter jack by removing two hex nuts from the DB-9 connector. But, hey, that beats staying mired in antiquated pre-2001 technology just for the sake of a nine-pin serial port.
These were on the market 6 months after USB was introduced.
I do love SparkFun though. Do a story on some of their slick hobbyist kits and the tech subculture they service.
This thing lets me use my old GPS unit whit my new laptop. It's wonderfull.
Where can I get the blocks?
I agree, this is a <a href="http://www.istanbul-nakliyat.org " title="evden eve nakliyat">evden eve nakliyat</a> very cool experiment. As to how long <a href="http://www.istanbul-nakliyat.org " title="evden eve">evden eve</a> the acrylic can hold the image, permanently. If you mean <a href="http://www.istanbul-nakliyat.org " title="nakliyat">nakliyat</a> how long the lightening flashes, I would imagine until the block is grounded, the flashes would persist.
I would imagine <a href="http://www.evdenevenakliyatcim.org " title="evden eve nakliyat">evden eve nakliyat</a> that on could generate a fair amount <a href="http://www.sudeposutemizligi.org " title="su deposu">su deposu</a> of income selling these <a href="http://www.sudepocum.org " title=" su deposu">su deposu</a> Lichtenberg figures.
