I have an "Informer" terminal I could bring - it resembles a luggable
VT-220 with a keyboard than snaps on the front of the CRT for storage.
It has a 3274-equivalent inside and any terminal can act as a controller
for others of its kind, daisy-chained as slaves. I got it for $90
at the Hamvention back when I used to make SNA gear for a living.

Did the SNA-for-Linux project die?
