It is true that the expansion port on the Poqet is a superset of the IBM-PC
ISA bus.  The reason it's a "superset" is that the expansion port also
contains all the RS-232C standard signals (RxD, TxD, RTS, CTS, etc.).

So there is built in support for serial, but nothing else.

Hello All.

Dear Mr. Glenwright:
Regarding:

Thanks for the correction!

a. Very sorry to read of your loss!
b. Should you reconsider giving away you Poqet acc's before you see if
   you can acquire a new Poqet?
c. Though it's probably hardly very cheap, $189 will still (I think) buy
you a "new" poqet from CADigital.


Cordially,
Richard Kanarek
