      If nothing else you can buy a used (refurb) computer from Tiger Direct that
      has serial ports for $100 and up. I have two I use for scanner control, ones
      been going almost 2 years non-stop. They ae cheap and have both serial and
      USB ports, and they have either XP Pro or Vista or no OS versions as well.
