I'm aware of those, but the next new USB serial device you plug in will
still be the next higher number.  It is the counter for this number I've
not been able to locate.

At this very moment I'm wearing a T-Shirt that says "Geek by Nature" on
the front and "Linux by Choice" on the back.  :-)  It is only at the
day job where IT told me "We are a Windows shop, Linux is nothing
but a toy" that I'm forced to use Windows (Resume anyone?).
Funny I thought we were a company that made Fire Fighting equipment,
not a shop that made Windows... :-<
