The logger used two TSC values. One prior to shooting the interrupt to the
target, and one when receiving the response. Responding to an interrupt
meant that a driver was hooked to the target's parallel port interrupt and
simply acted by toggling an output pin on the parallel port, which in turn
was hooked onto the logger's parallel port in a similar fashion. We'll
post the code for all components (both logger and target) for everyone to
review. There's no validity in any tests if others can't analyze/criticize/
