|I now have a need for an old-school serial port on my i-opener. It's time to wire out the internal serial port (where I am currently drawin 5v power for my Lasagna fan---guess I'll have to pull 5v from the internal (just pads) USB connector instead, now) to a 9-pin D-style. Does anyone have Radio Shack part #'s on a "block" that will sit on the internal serial connector, allowing easy wiring of all those pins? I'd rather not solder wire straight to the connector. I imagine findin the 9-pin wireable D-style connector at RS will be easy enough.|
Any assistance here appreciated. And hey, I should get bonus points for a new i-opener use. I am prepping my i-opener (running win98) to run APE, the Atari Peripheral Emulator ( http://www.atarimax.com/ )---which makes a Win95/98 PC look like an Atari floppy drive (or other hardware on the Atari SIO serial bus) to the Atari 8-bit machine, allowing loading of disk images, etc. straight from the PC's HD without having to bust out actual 5.25" floppies of the images. (Got really interested in the 8-bit Atari demo scene of late and have a 130XE setup on its way). That's gotta be a lesser-used usage!!
