I've read that there is a 4 port serial drive that uses one COG. I'm having trouble fining it in the OBEX. Can someone provide a helping link?

Found it with a ctrl-f. It's hard to find stuff in the OBEX

Tracy Allen has an updated version that fixes some of the flow control issues. I think he also increased the buffer(s).

I'll find it and post a link here.

It's nice to see so many improvements in the object I use so often. Thank you Tracy and Duane for the time and effort you have spent on it. Many thanks also to Tim Moore for creating it in the first place.

I do have to agree that finding the object in the OBEX is difficult, and I think that is mainly due to it's name. I had to hunt for it my library a few times until I changed the name into something a bit more intuitive (at least for me). Between the original and the improved versions I now have 4 versions in my library. QFDS-64 for the original, QFDS-128 and QFDS-512 for Duane's improved versions, and now QFDS-V for Tracy's variable buffer version.

Many thanks to all three of you once again.
