i guess i will have to end up getting another board as while i can solder small stuff, im not exactly comfortable about it...a 50 dollar zipit is one thing but 170$ verdex is something else entirely  :S

i suppose i could try to find the points on the robostix before it enters the converters ( and so to be unaffected by the voltage converted toggling problem ), but still edgy on that as id have to go through schematics and such.

ah well. thanks for the help anyways

OK - here are a few other options:

1 - Get some other non-robostix 60-pin board and use the console on that

2 - There are a couple of pads on the verdex for FFUART that the JTAG
presses against. You could try soldering some wires to these (not
recommended unless you're good at soldering small stuff).
