Hehe, there is irony in that last statement (as history goes round
full circle :-). BTW, I've been pretty good at getting most serial
devices to communicate with each other. With some trickery I can get
some devices to jump layer 1 protocols. A good breakout box can let
you go a great distance! But I haven't done a whole lot of current
loop (wet or dry [zap] ;-).
