and i guess since parport is orphan so no one is working on that
also, and maybe one more problem you all will be facing is lack
of systems with a parport. I do have systems with parallel port, so
let me try and see if i can do something about it. To start with,
I think I should go back to your LDD3-ch.14 for rest of the day.
