Link: Taking This Serially

March 1, 2021

j. b. crawford's Taking This Serially (via) is about the history of serial connections and RS-232, including the various connectors used and the complications that ensued with actually connecting things serially. I have a certain amount of history with serial connections, so I found this interesting.

(Also, looking at the article's pinouts for DE9/DB9 serial connectors made me realize something, but that's another blog entry.)
