Don't worry, 10 different easy ways from little boxes to software running
on a spare mac will convert between ethernet and localtalk. Also while
apple may be phasing out serial ports and localtalk hardware on new macs, I
REALLY doubt it will drop software localtalk support on all the existing
hardware that soon.

BTW I have many of the little ethernet to localtalk boxes, price varies
from $15 to $30 dependingon the flavor.
