I have a Parallax black on green 2 line LCD and use the 'Serial LCD' Object with it. I got bored of black on green and ordered a serial enabled red on black from another company. Theirs uses a different serial adapter... At first I though get out the soldering iron lol but sure enough there's an Object for it http://obex.parallax.com/objects/660/ and the object was made so I can swap it with my existing driver without modifying my original code.

That's awesome!

Yes, this is the beauty of the prop providing the objects use compatible calls. No intertwined interrupt code, just an object running in the same or another cog.

If only the serial, tv and vga, and keyboard objects used compatible calls! (eg ser.tx, tv.out)
