I'm kinda wanting to try it too. Talking to myself via "realterm" on an
oldschool-ish com port instead of just poking a GPS with a builtin
USB<-->serial sounds fun.

Just need to steal a jumper off ... well... I don't have spare hardware
lying around or anything, but I think I know someone who might.

Oops, forgot what else I was going to post. Landlord had a few
contractors fixing something in the building today, and had to let them
in and help with a few minor things. Guess I'll eat breakfast now?

Still half asleep,
