Some computers are especially slow at doing a linefeed to
the screen. I'd think it could keep up with 110 Baud though.
Most teletypes have some way for a signal from the computer
to throttle the paper tape read ( as I recall ). You might
look at connecting some handshake.
You didn't state if it was making mistakes from the first
character or if it read several right and then lost it.
If it read some right, how long does it go before it
makes mistakes? Any line feeds involved?
