Nice! Could you send me the email address of this "Avision software
manager"? Or ask him/her whether it is possible to get a new SCSI Spec
(and maybe also the magic parallel Spec anyone ever saw) from them?

My latest versoin is:
rene@jackson:~/daten/doc/hardware > head avision-Scsi3_12101999.txt

Avision Scanner SCSI protocol V3.02

Rev date: 05/18/98'

1.1  SCSI Specification

     SCSI Version             :    SCSI-II, X3.131-199x,
                                   Mar. 9, 1990

And they stopped to answer to my e-mails :-(.
