Just received an email sale flyer from http://newegg.com that features a 
USB<-->Serial "dongle" cable based on the hassle-free FTDI chip set for only 
$12.29 including free shipping!

This completely avoids the interminable hassles with Prolific-chipset-based 
dongles and their gawd-awful buggy drivers.

Deal is on only until 14 August so check out this URL:


and note the promo code EMCXMXM89

A writeup on my website about the issues with USB<-->serial adapters and the 
vast advantages of the FTDI chipset is here on my website:
