You wouldn't happen to have one of those cards that wedges in a slot in the
VT100 logic board that has a couple of 10-pin DEC serial connectors and
perhaps a cable? I've seen one once, but don't have one at the moment.
My memory is that they were most useful with a VT103 to cleanly hook the
ports on a DLV11J to the terminal port and the (optional) internal TU58s.

Seeing as how I _have_ a VT103 at home, and have always wanted to throw a
decent machine inside it (decent as in something with a hard drive and
capable of running anything from RT-11 up through some flavor of UNIX),
I think aquiring one of these serial adapter boards would be kinda handy...
not essential, just handy.
