Yes, I know circa 1985 I used the standard Unix termcaps for the M100
and the C-64 over 300 baud links.

Sure, some people on the net try to sell them, but they're easy to
wire if you can find the DIN connector. I did one in a few minutes
after digging for the DIN in the junk box. Worked the first time.
See <http://ftp.funet.fi/pub/cbm/transfer/1541-to-PC/> for more info.

I can't begin to tell you how easy and rewarding it can be to dig
around on the web, following one clue to another. If you entered
"x1541" or "1541 pc" in <http://www.hotbot.com> or any other
search engine, or <http://www.dejanews.com>, I'm sure you'd
quickly find dozens of references.
