So get a good-looking, small PC :) Truth be told, I'm still looking for one that fits both my technical and aesthetic needs, but I'm sure I'll find one eventually.

Get two of these ethercards for your commodores and you do. Or get a $10 card for your pc, or a high-speed internet connection such as ADSL or a cablemodem -- it's all ethernet. RB> Just a thought: what about a ISDN-inter- face? Walk down to the nearest computer shop and order an ISDN modem. RS-232 in one end, ISDN connector in the other. ISDN is only 128 kb/s so a Turbo232 is adequate. I'm pretty sure they're hayes compatible, so it should work with any PPP stack, such as LUnix or the Wave.
