Well I'm quite pleased with my Poqet PC Plus now that I've gotten 
some software on it at last.  However, the cobbled-togather RS232-
DS-9 adapter allenwrenched onto the back of my poqet is most 
unwelcome and if i could find a better adapter for it i'd be thrilled.

A whole mess of stuff.  Music, games, and a lovely
circa-1980 text interface. Sorta. ICQ: 3680132
