Alas, I don't :-) but I have two Tomy Tutors, even better! :-P

I saw that "Hex-Bus" interface in the back. I haven't really gone through
the manual yet, but I did some web searching for a pinout or description
and can't really find any except for mentions of TI's apocryphal interfaces
and software. Hooking it up to my C64 would be cool if I could somehow turn
it into a regular DB-25 or equivalent and plug it in the C64's user port.

No, no software :-(
