    Hi Justin

    Merry Christmas back at you. Nice website and a nice job. :)

    Now I noticed in the download there were 2 files, there was the .exe (executable) and the inpout32.dll file. Shouldn't your visitors who download the files do something with the .dll file? Also, maybe you should tell people who download the program how to run it and what operating systems it will run on.

    Unfortunately my older test computers are currently buried under Christmas stuff in my work area and I don't have a parallel port on either of the systems I normally use. Maybe with time away from work over the Holidays I can clean out my work room and try your program out. :)

    You also may want to share what software (VB) you used to write the program.

    Have a Cool Yule
    Ron
