I put some time into the windows program that makes this whole thing tick tonight. When I first started this project, I started with Marco’s afr.c, and pared it down to the bare necessities. Then, I modified whichever functions needed changed. Now I’m at the point where I’m putting many functions back, and still in the process of converting them from a parallel-port driven model to a USB/serial based solution. Completely different, but I’d argue much easier(albeit less direct). I like the fact that many things are handled by the SX instead of software.
I’d not too far removed from getting a full-fledged version of this running, at least as far as automating and sucking down a whole disk. Right now the version is command line, but that will change as soon as its reliable enough. The decision will be visual C++/.net vs java. I’ll cross that bridge when I come to it.
