nice suggestion....but with no subject at all! what resistor? do not joke please. it was a really serious topic!
anyhow, thank you for your hidden suggestion. ;-)
What kind of a joke did u make out of my comment? U said there seemed to be a series resistor and I suggested removing it, what resister else could it be??? And for the buffering part I meant a simple buffer like 74HC(T)244 or similar according to ur needs. What further information do u need before google-ing for some actual application?
