What would the overall throughput be for 7 connections over a 115200
bps? ~9600 bps? Still, a geat accomplishment for a CoCo, and I
don't even think a cooling fan will be needed, unlike these power
hungry PCs today that bog down with the hour glass cursor even when
nothing else is going on. Makes ya wonder whether a rack of CoCo 1's
can do a better job. Take'em out of their cases, network them all
together somehow and make one big CoCo array.
I haven't investigated further into the Telnet features of the
Internet Modem program that the CoCoNet server is built upon, but I
think the CoCo can serve and I've seen references to IRC in the code as well.
