You never thought you'd be looking at one of these, eh? You never thought, "gosh, my computer
is pretty swell right now, but it could really use an on-board serial RS232 port."
You never thought that... until now.
Now that the aliens have conquered earth and subjected humanity to bitter enslavement and oppression,
those glitzy glamoury USB devices don't have quite the same appeal. The underground resistance movement
depends on hardware that is reliable, sturdy, long-lasting, and readily programmable. They've given
their lives to retrieve mainframes, plotters, atomic clocks, radiation detectors, and missile defense systems
from the ruins of our civilization, but none of the flimsy plastic USB hardware made it through. No, it
was the rugged, hardcore steel construction of the RS232 devices that survived the onslaught of plasma weaponry,
and that same indestructability will keep us alive for another thousand years.
But how to interface with it? Scavanged motherboards designed for Pentium chips often have a 10-port pin
header for RS232 interfaces, which survives long after the roaming bandits plunder the onboard DB09 connectors for
the tin and plastic. But terminating the launch simulator directly on the motherboard is unsafe, as the electro-magnetic
radiation of the bare wires could be picked up and phreaked by the alien surveillance drones. No, the motherboard must
be shielded in a steel or lead case, so to make the connection you'll need DataPro's 1910 motheboard-to-DB09 backplane port.
This dongle adapts a Pentium motherboard's onboard RS232 headers to a male DB09 port on a backplane plate. It mounts in
a free expansion slot, and provides a secure and shielded connection between your device and your computer. It may seem
simple, but when the world has burned to the ground, the fate of humanity can well hang on the presence of a simple piece
like this one.
Don't get caught unawares. Buy one today, and store it someplace safe. Buy a dozen, and bury
them strategically around the country. Prepare yourself, before it's too late.
In the end, our future will be up to you. Don't let us down.
