Right, but without 32k, what kind of terminal software are you planning to use?
I agree totally with that statement!
I'm looking at it from a perspective that would allow the greatest number of users. If someone was going to take on the great task of designing and building a new RS-232 for the TI community, they would probably want to sell more than a couple of units. Considering the diversity of TI configurations, and the various needs and wants of people, that was why I figured a true stand alone that was not dependent on any other hardware (or expense) would be the ideal solution.
