I'd rather buy it, for two reasons. First, I've never found a female DIN-8
port for sale (and not for lack of looking) -- that wasn't in something
else, that is. Second, and more importantly, my soldering skills are zero.
I know it's easy for a lot of you, but some of us are terminally all thumbs
at even "simple" soldering tasks. :-)

I'll look at sucking out the board EPROM and see if that gives me clues
about how to build a LocalTalk frame.
