More about USB

I have been interfacing PC's in none standard ways for years and these days its getting tricky to do with all these fancy frills interfaces that require windows drivers.

One thing I have been toying with is using a USB port as a bit bashed port so I dont have to use specific USB hardware, I did see a small article on the subject. Thinking back the guy was in the USA and had 8 PCF 8574's and 8 8574A's directly connected to the bus with LEDS on each output giving him 128 programmable bits, costly way to do it but it did look good.

If anyone has any information on this could you send it to me.
