No sweat.  A Mac Plus modem cable and a null modem, and your serial
connection is made.  AUI adapters for your 10base-of-choice aren't hard to
find, either.  If Mr. Bill ever gets the ones from the thrift store, he can
send you one of mine.

I think the Cycle-5 upgrade to the IPC/IPX lunchboxes is a sweet deal, and I
wish I had one.
