Me too, someday. I loved writing stuff on the Apple ][, and there are
still some ideas I had that I want to finally implement. One is a simple
networking protocol that can be loaded resident into ProDOS and allow you
to have a TCP/IP gateway to a Linux block. It'll have it's own simple
packet protocol for sending and receiving data over a serial port. On top
of that you'll be able to build device drivers for virtual Apple ][ disk
drives (or in ProDOS speak, volumes) on a PC for transferring files.

Someone has written a great utility that allows you to use your PC as a
file server from your Apple ][ and I believe vice-versa. I forgot what
it's called but I believe the website where the software can be found is
listed in the Emulators subsection of the Apple Resources section of the
VCF Link Library:
