Re: USB to Serial adapter

I have one of these, and it works fine.

There are several other threads on this topic; you'll find more information if you use the search.

Thanks for making FIRST such a great experience for me. I'm no longer on 1351, and I'm not currently planning to mentor team 97, but FIRST has meant so much in getting me to where I am now, in life and at MIT, class of 2011.
I met Billfred! He recognized me!
