64NET? Unhappy on the PC side, who knows?  At one time I was a religeous
64NET user.  That was back when a C= PC10-3 was my server.  The last machine
I've seen it work on was an olde 486.  This leads me to believe that the
computer speed is at fault.  This is why I'm hoping to hear from a 64NET
user of a modern machine... to get some tips, or at least a confirmation
that it still works on faster machines.

I've casually followed the postings here about serial slave, and am very
very very very interested in it.  However, I gathered that it was a
loader/saver system.  If it is capable of transferring extremely large files
in batch, then I am your beta tester!
