    Default 595/Grinch USB Drive

    I was looking at the device again from SparkFun Electronics and at $18 I think maybe it should be suggested as a replacement for Parallel port problems people keep having.
    Though maybe with a bit of driver help,74HC240 or something similar.

    Thoughts?

    Is that based on the FTDI245 chip? I've got a project going using the module from mouser (DLP-UM245R)...is it more or less the same thing?

    jwells PM'd me the other day with this idea. I suggested he post in the olsen forum about it. Did he?

    Dunno, I was intending to promote the other parts from DLP, however, this product is so much cheaper.

    I think that’s why he suggested it also. He was watching the dongle thread and saw me mention it. I told him that it might be worth pursuing even if it didn't work.
