Has anyone successfully built the infrared (serial port) transmitter described on the site: http://www.lirc.org/transmitters.html?

There isn't a very accurate part list and the instructions aren't nearly as detailed as they are for the receiver.  Maybe that is because it is as easy as it looks.  Anyway, if someone has a partlist for what they have built along with some good instructions that would be great.

By the way, I tried searching through the archives and the link is broken: http://sourceforge.net/mailarchives/forum.php?forum=lirc-list
