    You can get one of these spiffy Rockwell automotiveTurbo Encabulators for 59 billion dollars. Or if that is too pricey there is always this newer Allen-Bradley Retro Entabulator but you'll still have to goto a Rockwell automation dealer.

    "Dongle" always makes me laugh.

    "Well just go plug that there dongle into that peripheral."
