Somewhat related, I think, but totally off-topic for this situation, is
a project called "tcpser".

It provides computers that connect via a serial port (e.g., an 8-bit
computer that you'd normally use a modem with) access to your network and
the Internet.

I haven't played with it myself, and it appears to not have a proper
'home page', but it's GPL and can be found here:


Here's a Usenet post from the author.  Sounds neat.  Maybe I shouldn't
have given away my Atari 850 serial connector device!
