[CQ-Contest] writelog on XP

I had trouble using optocouplers. They wouldn't key the rig.
I went back to a 2N2222 with 1K in the base lead.
I tried all the free programs for LPT keying and couldn't
get any of them to work. I did get DIRECTIO to work.
Instructions can be found here:
You can download a full trial version of DIRECTIO for free
If it works, pay the man $29 right away. If you let the 30
day trial expire, it is a pain to remove and reinstall
directio, at least it was on my machine.

Subject: [CQ-Contest] writelog on XP
I am going to be using Writelog with Windows XP...XP does
not use the lpt ports.
I am trying to find a 4N33 optocoupler to set the keying
through the Comm port.
I have not been able to find a vendor with the things in
Does anyone have any idea where I can get a couple? Does
anyone have any really good easy solutions for getting the
lpt ports to work in XP?
Thanks in advance...
