      For anyone who uses a computer with older hardware it is still possible to
      get full-spec motherboards with both parallel and serial ports. Both
      full-size and mini ITX are available.
      The only "problem" is getting it built although if anyone can make a
      Softrock and get it going they should be able to build a computer.
      I understand that proper USB/LPT adaptors are available but all I have seen
      are just intended for printers.
      Of course internal cards are available.
