Re: KCT Card PCI Version?



Well for my 2 cents, ... what we need is a USB tracking device, .... you can
chain lots of USB devices off of one PC port, and not take up any slots. And
while we are making the spec, ... drop the 256 limitation of the KCT and go
to 65536 and beyond.... I don't know how to build such a device, ... but the
USB approach would be better than a PCI card.
