And as it happens today I decided to check to see if all of my boards work. It happens they do. FYI I used the programs for connecting a TI calculator to a Basic Stamp, and as it happens it worked.
Both the BS1 on its regular board, and on the super carrier board. And the BS2 boards such as the BOE board, and the super carrier one. Right now I am, ah, working out the details how to have a definite something-else to talk to a Basic Stamp on its board, obviously it won't be a BS1.
