I'll have to head over there and join up. I suppose the fact that I've never used Python won't help. I'm great at PHP and BASIC (remember that? QB64 is an excelent modern version) so looks like I need to learn a new language too.
It's worth learning in any case, although I am not sure it would just be a cheap alternative to a dedicated converter.

You would need the pi, plus either a rs232 shield, or a 232-usb to connect the 232 into the pi

Edit:

You don't have to use python, you can use any number of languages, provided there is a compiler around, so C, perl, basic, and so on.

May not be cheaper but it'll be a challenge. Plus I'll learn something new in the process.

Python? who said Python?

"This parrot is no more! It has ceased to be! It's expired and gone to meet its maker! This is a late parrot! It's a stiff! Bereft of life, it rests in peace! If you hadn't nailed it to the perch, it would be pushing up the daisies! It's run down the curtain and joined the choir invisible! This is an ex-parrot!

Python is named after monty-python!

Raspberry pi - is part named after the pi (py) in python

My mate is having , networky issues with latest kernel .
You get something working nicely remotely- then security "Progress" brakes things.
Just wish that the answer always was 42 with coding issues !
