I guess so. I don't know that much about USB, I just knew we needed. Most
printers nowadays don't have centronics connectors anymore.
Quote:> What types of devices is Guus/people thinking to access from the Atari?
Guus was thinking mainly about the printers (I talked him into developing
it). I was thinking aboput just about everything you can hook to it.
Starting with printers and *s. But the ability to network with either
more Atario's or even a PC (as a replacement for the SIO2PC cables) would be
nice to have too.

I re-sent your previous message in which you volunteered for this project to
Guus. He could find your old message. I'll forward this message to him
too. So he might contact you.
