I don't suppose someone of your ilk could point a young bloke to some
reading on serial comms with linux boxes?  I have a box of odd things
I'd like to get going to save some manual data input (microchip reader,
barcode scanners etc).  Might even be useful when I get a GPS next year.
I keep putting it off for a rainy day, but the drought hasn't broken
yet.  About 20 years ago did a bit with minicom and remote weather
stations, but can't recall how I got started.
