Re: Looks easy

I've done a few projects, where part way though was a wondering what I was thinking when I decided to start it.  But by that stage, the only course of action was to finish the job!
However, like my  Gardening project,  we got it finished in the end,  and it was worth the effort.

You can get a RS232->USB cable for a couple of quid.  My Cisco has a serial port for configuration when it's "blank" but obviously no serial port on my PC, so the USB job works wonders although probably not a sound investment if you're only going to use it once or twice or don't have many serial port products to use with it.

Yeah I'm aware of them but Velleman (the company who make the maplin kits) clearly state that these do not work with these programmers and their forums have had quite a few complaints over the years due to this.
I do have computers with RS232 ports but none of them are working at the moment and they're all packed away in a difficult to access place.

Fine if you have the £££'s for it, otherwise you just have to get your hands dirty.  Undecided
