Serial port monitor software
The crew at Adafruit remind us of a handy serial port monitoring tool for Windows known as PortMon. PortMon is an old school Microsoft utility used for monitoring all serial and parallel activity on a system.
While USB rules the day for most PC-peripheral communications, PortMon can help when reverse engineering serial devices by sniffing the serial comms with the PC. This is what Adafruit noted, allowing the development of code to use a serial JPEG camera with Arduino.
