I would be really interested to know if anybody in the group who 
received one from you was able to make it talk.

I have too many here already, and they all behave the same way ...  They 
seem to function in the 'loopback' mode, but will not send bits in the 
other mode.  (Look for the switch on the backside to determine what mode 
it is in.)

All of mine came with what look like serial cables and the external 5v 
wall wart.  I don't have to chop the cable like the guy on the 
'codeninja' page did.  (I'm trying to start a conversation with him to 
see what I'm missing.)
