That is a little too steep for a fancy dongle. Dang! I was really excited
about the idea of getting to sit in a chair 20 feet from the server and
sstill having a serial terminal.

What I don't understand is that the cost of the BT printer adapters are
less that $100. Why so much for serial? I mean, if Epson can sell a BT
parallel printer adapter for $99, why is this thing $240?

Well, hopefully a capitalist will produce them cheaply and eat this
company for lunch. HOw much could it cost to make one of these?
