Speaking of printers, I have an HP Laserjet 4. Will an ORDINARY
serial to parallel converter work with the coco (provided I build a
coco serial to 9 pin serial adapter) given that the coco's serial port
is not 5 volts? This printer is old but its solid and I can get
replacement toner/drum cartridges for $70.00.
