Its a braile utility.  I might have plastic eyes but I'm not blind so why 
is it running, and if I kill it, it comes back just by plugging in one 
of those cables.  What the hell sort of a virus is this thing called 
brltty?  Is it uninstallable?, yes, which now gives me a ttyUSB0 when 
one of these 232 adapter cables is plugged in. Now to find out why it 
really isn't working. Had to set perms to 0777 on the whole path to its 
log. ISTR I had to do something along those lines for wheezy too, years 
ago now. And now its working.
