Hmm, aren't the voltages and currents defined in IEEE 1284? Contact me privately if you have trouble locating that standard; I should be able to access it via http://ieeexplore.ieee.org from the university network. I'd be interested in the outcome as well. Here's a more on-topic project: connect the Commodore 64 user port to a IEEE 1284 printer port of a PC (possibly running GNU/Linux or FreeBSD), and write printer daemon software that is compatible with existing userport-to-parallel printer drivers on the 64. Someone is trying to demonstrate something like this next weekend in Chicago, but I believe he is only aiming for a proof-of-concept, as he is using cbmlink and some shell script programming. Marko (who is slowly making progress with his RS-232 to serial bus gateway, thanks to recent measurement results) Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list
