This conversation started with you asking for a way to have faster transfers 
over the IEEE-488 bus.  Jim replied with "Write your own parallel routines 
using the IEEE lines as conduits for your non IEEE protocol."  I replied to 
that and suggested any new protocol should take the 75160/75161 into account. 
I gave the SoftBox as an example of a protocol that did not.
