Profile emulation on a PC or Mac

There was someone trying to interface a Lisa to a PC, making the PC act like a Profile drive. That college class project didn't get completed, but there is a bunch of info on the project, the Profile and Lisa parallel port at:

I thought that this was a terrific project, as Profile drives are become rarer and they will probably all break down before the Lisa's do. Making a PC act like a Profile is a great solution. Unfortunately, I have never received a response from the folks at swarthmore college and suspect the project is abandoned. :-(

Anyone know what happened to the project, or are there others who have done this? I worry about my profile drives dying before my Lisa and would love to have a PC as a backup. If no one (is doing/has done) this, I may take my own shot at it.
