since I only have one serial port it drives me a bit crazy to have to constantly switch my cable from avrisp to avr board... So I found these: http://www.adapterz.com/prods_US... - has anybody used either? They are very reasonably priced.

I've personally never used one as I have two serial ports on my machine and that's all I need. Many people recommend them and depending on the software you have you can use dozens of them at the same time (some older programs have difficulties using com port numbers that are higher than 4.

The one at the bottom of the page (USB-to-Serial DB9 Adapter) looks like the BAFO unit I use. This BAFO unit works just fine with both the AVRISP and connected to the AVR UART. See this thread for more information.
