Hmmm...I just remembered a very ancient (and funny) fact.
Some decades ago, I had two 486' and a 386 networked with lantastic and
personal netware (yes...I was something you can call "rich" as a 16-year-old
boy working repairing computers) and had my own BBS. These were the times,
where it was hard as hell to put more than two modems in the same computer
(I hadn't discovered major bbs yet, I used RA + deskview + QEMM). Since the
computers were tied to my BBS nodes, I wanted to have a CHEAP serial
terminal for a "local sysop" node.
I had a msx with serial port...hmmm...
It was easy :) Opened a DOORWAY session inside deskview and connected
the MSX to the serial port. I was "running MSDOS 5" on MSX, no one
understood how it could be possible hehehehe :oD And this was my permanent
local node. So bad it didn't had ANSI.
These were the times...
