Actually, to tell the truth, I haven't been following this thread
until just then, so I feel a bit guilty. I've got an ALM VME board
that should fit into ftoomsh okay. It's got twelve or maybe
sixteen (don't remember which) async serial ports.
Let me put it another way. You organise the phones and the modems and
I'll organise the hardware for ftoomsh.
