A while back, while moving some cables, I managed to connect a 25 pin 
serial cable to my 25 pin parallel printer port. Some interesting things 
happened, the weirdest was that my computer reported a wild CPU 
temperature increase. I think on my MB, the chip that handles the 
parallel port also performs CPU temperature monitoring and I forced the 
chip VCC higher than normal having RS232 voltage levels presented on its 
I/O pins.
