Found a new serial console for my Diag cart

While going through some old boxes I found the (nearly) perfect Serial console for my STs :D

It works pretty well with the Diag Cart and I even found some GEM software to transfer and convert files.
Next time I’ll try with a Portfolio, just need to find a parallel cable first.

Ah, interesting solution there...I have an old Psion 3 somewhere (plus serial interface) so that might be a good space efficient solution!

Maybe I'll start shopping for one of those on eBay :)

Once I get my stuff out of storage I'll be testing this on my Amstrad NC100.
