Hardware? But VB is software! Even so, one of the things I like to do is to use the software to make physical things happen - the hardware side of computing. On this page you will find information and links about accessing your PC's ports (serial, parallel, and USB). You'll also find information about the theory and practice of building physical interfaces to your PC. As time goes on I'll add some tutuorial information as well. This section will allow Beginners and more Advanced users a peek at a whole new way to use their programming skills.
