I was going to send a more detailed email, but I could not find my notes
on the subject...sorry!  Kind of a tounge-in-cheek response on my part

I know that Larry Anderson demoed at VCF 9 two PETs hooked up via a
parallel cable and adapter I believe for use in a game.  The game involved
a split screen view on both systems, with views of the other screen
transmitted through the parallel cable.  I don't have all of the details. 
I have a later pet with a strange coax port daughterboard used in some
sort of communications.  Sorry I cannot be specific.
