I have strange behaviours with Firefox (with Javascript) so I still have IE handy to test.

@ Elwood

Yeah I know the feeling, i've written some admin webpage stuff, and can't get it to work with Firefox yet!

One comment about your "building a uA1-C" article. I'm about to announce publicly that we at Software Hut (in PA) have finished testing and are able to sell custom serial I/O cables that DON'T have the clearance problems that the FrontX (and other) serial cables have as you can see from the third picture below. They are 6" cables, but custom lengths can be special ordered. I don't believe Joe has gotten them on the web page, so interested parties should contact him at for pricing (both end-users and distributors). Note, the cable doesn't normally come with a card stake holder. It does, however, have all the required hardware to mount in a chassis hole/punch-out.

Here are some pictures of the cable (I hope the pictures are viewable, I'm doing this on my MAC at work using gimp):

Cable with US penny for scale:

2 pics of cable plugged into board (different angles):

Other than that (shamless plug that it is), I like your article, and I plan on having my customers who have questions check it out. Thanx for making my support job easier.

That's great news. If at some future time you can provide a URL to that
product on your website I would gladly edit the article to show what
you offer. Just PM the URL to me when it's ready.

At the risk of sounding like a salesman for some other company, you can
get the PCI slot covers with the proper cutouts for a 9 pin serial connector
at the same source I quoted in the article, with the following details:

Single 9 pin hole: BRK-9
Dual 9 pin hole: BRK-99

Prices are reasonable, especially in quantities.
The ones I got from them were a TINY bit wide for my case, but that may have been the fault of my case.

I recall seeing in some previous posting that the Micro-AOne had no serial port.
I'm a bit suprised that even the MAI documents had the pinout wrong.
I'm glad we are turning the tide on that misinformation.

Thanks for sharing this info. Very well done.

This nicely compliments the previous articles from Kindergip and NeRP, as well as the A1-C motherboard info shown on
