Never tried zTerm, nice idea on applescript thing post a link when you finish it. I have stopped developing USBConnect, however, if someone wants further releases with certain features just post, I basically wrote it for personal use
Lately I been busy developing a kernel for the intel 32 and 64 bit series... When I had to get input I can't say how much I wished I was coding an OS for a PDA or something using arduino rather than Intel, 2 weeks trying to figure out how to get input and make an IRQ table and you will love microcontrollers, Much love to the micros!.
I also been working on a simple program for arduino that whatever data you send it gets saved into bytes 0 - 512 so memory locations 0 - 13 if 0 has the byte 0 it sets the power for that port to LOW if its 1 then it sets it to HIGH, so as long as you power up your arduino ur program runs off the EEPROM.
