Dynamode USB-SERIAL not working...

This is just a quick warning for people thinking of buying a Dynamode USB to Serial Convertor. This device uses an Ark Micro chipset, rather than the more common Prolific PL-2303. Unlike the PL-2303 chipset, which has OSX drivers, the Ark Micro chipset doesn't. So if you want a USB to Serial convertor to use with your Mac, don't buy this one...

Update: There is an experimental Linux driver, but that doesn't help me a lot at this point.
