Adapter board for Parallel LCD displays - the X-board!

As I was looking at the product listing of Matrix Orbital, I stumbled across the X-board S-Series, a serial board that connects to parallel LCD displays! This is a simple but very useful board that allows you to connect your parallel LCD displays to a serial port on your computer. I have a few spare parallel LCD displays lying on my desk right now, and I will definitely going to get the X-board to try out. Finally, I can kiss my soldering iron good bye and focus on programming the LCD (well, not yet...I still have to solder the LCD pins to the X-board...). Sweet! For those concerned about the price, the X-board costs $24.95, which I think is a cool deal.
