I take it you mean the serial cable?  I built one and it seems to work no
problem for some things.  I can talk to the DC okay and upload some
programs - it responds no problem.  The only problem I've had was when I was
trying to use Bero's Dreamrip software to rip a gdrom over the serial cable
(wanted to know if we could extract the DOA2 models from the filesystem -
hoping somewhat!) and it keeps falling over at various times and just
filling my terminal screen with garbage - I suspect that could be something
else though.  For most things you'd wanna use it for it works fine.

Actually - since you mentioned it - does anyone on this list know where
Jules site has gone? seems frreservers have taken it down for breach of AUP
but I'd have thought he'd have it back up by now.  Typical ISP's
misinterpreting what people are trying to do.
