      Hi Brad,

      Its nice to hear that im not the only one who thinks LB is more than a "toy
      language".
      And I have finally finished an other serial com project. I had to build for
      the lab a synthesis unit that converts radio active CO2 into HCN ( the HCN
      is used as abuilding block for many things ). All the communication between
      the PC and the unit is serial.
      That way valves, ovens, etc are easely controled.

      If you get stuck i'd be happy to help,
