If you're happy with RS-232 only (but with HS and baud rate conversion)
then I've got some 16-port NetCommanders for ya. Also some modems
and statmux concentrators if they're in different cities ;-)

And I could probably also find a nice model 500 phone (and maybe even
the DataPhone version) and an acoustic coupler for that other project ;-)
Yeah, I thought it was neat first time I saw it, but a little pricey...

Couldn't resist defying your sig BTW...

I'm considering a terminal server for playing with multiple computers
using multiple terminals.  Can someone recommend something inexpensive
and/or used?  The idea is that I'd sit at one of several terminals and
select which host I want to talk to.

While mentally rolling this around this afternoon, I found my way to this
perverse fantasy -- going "online" in public with a Sparkfun portable
rotary phone[1] and a portable printing terminal (say, a Tandy PT-210).
