[Frontpage News]Parellel Port is Alive and Well
« on: August 11, 2010, 01:17:34 PM »
If you believe everything you read on the internet, you'll find out that the parallel port is still a valid piece of connectivity.  Don't believe me?  Then take a look at this awesome pairing of dongles and adapters over at Gizmodo. 

This one is one farther than I have seen it before. I have had a customer think it would work up to the serial port connection..

Not really on a parallel port but have done this type of daisy chain to a mouse before.... nice work :) 
Remember kids, if you happen to find yourself upside down and on fire, you've just discovered the meaning of "too fast".
