Interesting, I'll have to take a look at your features the next time
we're in the market for tools. One problem I have currently is running
ICC430 + its JTAG pod on one parallel port and CCS + a Spectrum Digital
JTAG on another parallel port gives WinXP heartburn if you run them in
the wrong order (something to do with the low level parallel port driver).

Thanks for the info,
