Sensing and Control for hobbyists and schools: Connecting using USB
Other pages in this site should get you all exicted about the sensors and actuators you can put into a control application. This page addresses some of the options for one of the ways to connect them the the PC which is the brains behind the system.
There are USB to Ethernet devices. Plug one of these into your USB port, and then all the things I tell you about under connecting sensors and actuators by LAN become possible.
Secondly, Dallas offer a USB adapter for their MicroLan. With one of these, all of the MicroLan sensors and actutors become available to you. See my MicroLan pages for more on this.
If you visit PhidgetsUSA.com, you will find a good range of USB-connnected devices for the school or hobbyist sensing and control enthusiast. I've done a separate page about their product line.

* Spell them properly.

hope they are helpful. However.. this doesn't pay my bills!!! If you find

freeware and shareware page, download something, and circulate it for me?
At least (please) send an 'I liked the parallel port use page, and I'm
