Back in my day, we knew what serial ports were. :specialed:

I'm assuming it's some kind of console output trace debugger kinda thing. Haven't read all the manuals yet. Gonna get them scanned first, I do not wish to risk damaging them in the "learning/reading" process before they are archived.

this kind of thinking is what leads to fried components, lol. 9-pin port != serial port. It's far more accurate to call it a db9 connector than to refer to it as a specific type of port, especially when you haven't identified it. Note I didn't call it an "atari joystick port."
