Well maybe someone will see the revised header and hopefully have some
ideas... I'd hate for us to have to invest that kind of money in a
Rocketport--they're just so damn costly :(
Plus, if we can get USB-to-serial adapters to work, if anyone ever
leaves our little bandwidth collective, they can take it with them...
I hope there's something out there that works :-/ I'm going to give the
keyspan a shot Thursday night just to see what happens.
