Wasn't there an old HC serial (ADB) adapter thingy that allowed you to
control external electronics? Made by Beehive maybe? Used to control
lighting of the world's tallest towers? (Jacque would remember).
Is there a USB version of it now? I thought that people used to do this
sort of thing in HC all the time...
Sorry; that's all I remember.
