I am.  I find parallel ports very useful for driving random digital
electronics.  I've built some three or four circuits designed to be
driven off a parallel port, and it was a good deal easier than doing
the corresponding thing with a serial port would have been.  (This is
probably at least partially an artifact of what's in my toolbox, as it
were, but I don't see that that invalidates the point.)
