cage to the MARCH display. I'm currently waiting on a 100baseTX SBUS card
for my SPARCclassic, but otherwise it looks like I'll have a server in the
NOCNOC with a serial port for console access. If nothing else, I can bring
my Kaypro II with a terminal emulator for connecting to telnet/SSH BBSes,
but anyone else is welcome to connect their vintage system to the server.
LexIcon recommended that any Cat5 cables should optimally be run on the
Thursday before HOPE since traffic through the area will be high, but I'm
usually up til 3 or 4 for such events, and could do the run at night when
there's less traffic.

I have never tested the modem, but if you're offering a serial connection
this I might be able to use. I have no plans that involve connectivity,
but we can mess around with it if you'd like.

I'll go ahead and look into building the breakout cable for the SPARCclassic's serial port, just in case anyone wants to use it.
