*are* there cheap ones? maybe I'm just too, too cheap a bastard,
but the ones I see are O($US 100) per port. cyclades, digi, who else?
multiport serial cards (comtrol rocketport) seem to be around $20/pt,
which seems close to reasonable.
has anyone tried a cluster where each node is simply has a serial crossover
to the next node?
hmm, cyclades 32pt model, web-list price, is $2741. that works out to
around 3% of total cluster cost.
