Hi,

Haven't played with Nerdkits for years and today pulled it out for fun but found a problem. I had no problem plugging the programming header into my old MacBook Pro's USB port and programming/transferring code. Since newer MacBook Pro's only have 4 USB-C ports, I have to plug the serial-USB into Apple's USB-to-type-C adapter and I can no longer find cu.PL2302-0000xxxx in /dev/. Any hint to fix this? Many thanks....

Just downloaded the newer driver from: http://www.prolific.com.tw/US/ShowProduct.aspx?p_id=229&pcid=41 and now in /dev/, "cu.usbserial" shows up...
