This implies you have a machine with an Unusable Serial Botch port!. It's
not Universal, in that none of the 200+ computers I have here have USB
ports or can have USB ports. It is serial. It's not a bus, at least not
in the hardware.

It's got other 'features' I don't like too... I'll stick to RS232, thank
