This is very interesting. Andre (Kaesmacher), Larry and I have all built
incompatible networking hardware but it's totally software-compatible!
Except for the use of PB6 and PB7 on Larry's phone connectors, which can
be regarded as an extension to the basic serial port network 'standard'.

All Andre's and my programs will work on Larry's hardware, and his will
work on ours as long as they don't use PB6 or PB7. We didn't know we were
re-inventing something that had appeared in Transactor 12 years ago when
we designed our hardware! OK, so it's not the most amazing idea ever, but
I think it does form a suitable basis on which to network large numbers of
Commodores together.
