  • Here is a question. I am chomping at the bit here to get started with a project with stuff from this site. I have a long history of software development on various platforms but I’ve never directly written against hardware before.

    I have an old Amiga computer. Post-Commodore the big box Amigas had a route to USB. So there does exist a USB stack on the machine. My Amiga is not a big box device. I was thinking about trying to write something that would plug into the serial port (25pin) and allow this to be an incredibly slow USB port (but still allowing data transfer).

    If I can do that, then I could look at the other hardware ports on the machine for something with faster access. Is this the totally wrong piece of hardware to try this with?

No public wish lists :(
