X10 on Windows is like that.

Does it take longer for your 300 baud acoustic coupler and teletype to process RED letters???

Well of course it does, silly!   I have to change to a red ribbon!

I have an old Radio Shack pen plotter you could use!  It has Red, Green, Blue and Black mini-ballpoint pens that change automatically!  I think I even have some spare pens (if they haven't dried out)!  Sorry I don't have a Windows driver, but somewhere I do have the program listing for the driver I wrote for my Atari computer to use two of the joystick ports as a parallel port.   ;D  But, it only prints on 4 inch wide roll paper.   :(

Sorry TTA about going OT again.   :-[  But, you guys started it!   ;)

I usually look at the topics that are currently kicking my &%^$#@ while installing a new system or module. I find the forum very informative as long as you can shy away from the idiots that are here to bash everything.   >:(

When I post a question on General pertaining to technical issues, I usually get a lot of feedback and information. Sometimes more than I need!! Normally, several ideas on how different "Old Timmers" have done it in the past comes to light and then you have to distinguish on which one is best for your application. Personally I think this is great! Most forums are old and stagnant. I look forward to becomming an "Old Timmer" myself here.  ;D

X10 offers a substantial array of equipment. Application situations can vary widely. Problems are numerous.

Therefore, many members will stop by the oasis to for a cool drink and to fine tune their knowledge and to seek solutions to technical problems. Those with extensive experience for the most part enjoy sharing what the years have taught them. Special thanks to those who share. The Community is in fact a substantial and valuable data base.

Appreciation is due the builders and constructive managers for their good work. Enthusiastic welcome is due the students. X10, itself, succeeds because it fulfills a worthy mission. Non contributors, on the other hand, and those who can't learn are simply extra baggage.

The X10 Community is a real place, a school, a library, and a center for joining together.

These are simple truths from beyond!
