I wanted to let everyone know that I categorized the display construction area and added a new section called "Going Green" that will emphasize LED lighting...

I wanted to add a section on wirekats MR-16 leds and Matt's porta flood design and other led lighting designs.

Being that leds are creeping more and more into our designs that it was only natural to have a section dedicated to this topic. I do not have a portaflood pcb yet... or any other led setups so please send me a PM for images and ideas to build this out... I plan on using the schematics and instructions on Matt's design.



I also added information to the Protocol pages pertaining to RS-232 to RS-422/485

Feel free to edit any of my work if I had made any mistakes anywhere...


Thanks
Tim

You can add IOBit's multiport USB to RS232 adapters to that list. I've used the 8 port one successfully.

OOPS - that should have been IONetworks! IOBit is software company that makes a really nice registry repair utility. The website is www.digi.com (they were aquired by Digi a while back). Look for the Edgeport products...
