I presume most know how "finicky" serial-USB adaptors can be but I have seen advertised, serial-Bluetooth adaptors.You haven't _seen_ finicky until you deal with bluetooth. USB/rs232 is rock solid and easy to use in comparison.If you get the cheapest usb/232 adapter you can find, they are more trouble than if you get a more reputable device. The chipset seems to have more to do with reliability than the manufacturer does. I have found FTDI devices to be superior to others (with Keyspan running a very close second).caveat: I'm running a mac powerbook; your bluetooth mileage may vary.
