Getting modem.mgr going was not fun, but once I read the manual and figured it out, I was good to go. The VT220 emulation didn’t give me any problems, even with unicode characters. I was able to connect at 19.2K without issue also.
I didn’t use the 9″ screen for very long, it was just too small at 80 columns. I dug out an AppleColor Composite Monitor IIe (say that ten times fast) and used it for the majority of the day.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
