Very interesting. Cute feature also being able to "LOAD a URL". What happens
if you try a HTML page? Could include a filter on the PC side to translate
it to PETASCII text only? Would make for a very simple C64 internet browser
(not another one I hear people say...)

One question about the 232 interface, does it need to be SW or Turbo232, or
will any 6551 compatible module do it?
