Which is generally seen as a hub in an lsusb, they just don't socket out the
other 3 ports. I had 2 of the FDTI versions, but the far end wasn't exactly
on the same circuit, and a wandering lightning strike took one of them out,
so now I have a powered hub plugged into the remaining good extension cable
with 3 of its ports in use when an eldlerly coco3 is powered up, and that has
been working nicely for about a year now. All my usb-serial stuff is FDTI,
the pl2303 stuff is pure crap as we found on the heyu mailing list.

I'm glad to hear Belkin stuff is working well, but I'd almost expect that
since they had a heavy hand in the original USB specs. Too bad their UPS's
don't adhere to it.

Its also worth note that Belkin has a real and obnoxious screw you attitude
about linux over in the UPS division. They make, or relabel, a darned good
UPS, and it would be very nice if we could actually talk to it from linux.
Unforch, their latest monitor software, BullDog, was built on an RH-5.2
system, and turns into a 100% of all cores cpu hog on a 2.4 or 2.6 SMP
kernel.

Attempts to get them to rebuild it for newer linux's have been made,
including giving us the src so we can. Their return msgs will answer every
question with boilerplate, except about the BullDog software for linux, those
questions are trimmed from the replies and ignored. Obviously my next UPS
when these batteries have failed will have a label on it that is known linux
friendly, like APC.
