[time-nuts] Hot Water Electronics

I run a real PCI-GPIB board after realizing the Prologix will never
work with mainstream software.  EZGPIB is sweet in that it lets you
code for the Prologix or an NI GPIB card and it "just works".  The
problem is that I also use some very old labview code too and the
Prologix just won't cut it.  It sure is simple to get up and running
though if you don't mind writing your own code or don't mind the
limits.  I recommend them too, but with caution for compatibility.
