If you're still using an old Centronix-only printer ... WHY? I see where you all are coming from, and I understand the desire to use a newer printer. Truthfully, My MPS-802 works fine for my purposes (program listings.) The question we need to answer is, what kind of port do you want to connect your printer to? I would suggest one or more of the following possibilities: IEC RS-232 USB If you MUST use a Centronix printer, it can be driven from the geek-port using a modded GEOCable device. There is no need for an external interfact device and therefore, no need for a cassette port to draw external power from. I am assuming Jeri will emulate a 6526 at the GeekPort anyway. I wonder what other cool I/O she might be planning for that port? > -- > Robin Harbron email@example.com <-- Please note the > domain change! > http://www.tbaytel.net/macbeth > http://www.psw.ca/ <-- Please note the > domain change! > - > This message was sent through the cbm-hackers > mailing list. > To unsubscribe: echo unsubscribe | mail firstname.lastname@example.org. ===== Get a FREE 6Mb webmail box from go6502! - http://www.geocities.com/profdredd As low as 2.99% Intro APR from NextCard! - http://www.nextcard.com/index6.html?ref=aff0074521 PayPal is the FAST FREE and SECURE way to send money! - https://secure.paypal.x.com/refer/pal=profdredd%40yahoo.com __________________________________________________ Do You Yahoo!?
