How can I connect my AlgaeWatch to a computer when there are no serial ports available?
If you do not have a serial port available on your computer you can connect your AlgaeWatch to an available USB port.  USB to serial adapters are available at most major electronics vendors.  These adapters will come with driver software.  You will want to make sure that the driver is installed and operating properly before you test your system out.  To verify operation you can use a communication program such as hyperterminal to verify the connection.
