I just wrote to him this week to get a status update. He already has the cassette port connectors (the most difficult part to source). He had some issues with a zener diode circuit that should allow the firmware to be flashed without setting any jumpers, and he didn't know how to test the serial bus connection (to be used later, if I get around to completing the experimental firmware I wrote in the summer of 2003). Nicolas, can you estimate the schedule? BTW, for unlucky people like me who no longer have a serial port on their main computer, there might be some hope. I've asked Patryk (silverdr) if he could test his Keyspan USB serial adapter on PC hardware. That adapter works fine with the C2N232 on Mac OS X. I even found a bearably priced (35 EUR) local source for them. PCMCIA based RS-232 adapters would work for sure, but they are out of my budget, up to several hundred EUR. :-( Marko Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list
