The PetBus 

The PetBus is an interface that is able to do several things:
- connecting the serial bus devices of the C64 family, like a 1541 disk drive, a MPS803 printer etc., to a PET computer or another Commodore computer having the IEEE488 bus **;
- connecting the parallel bus (IEEE488) devices of the PET family, like a 4040 double drive, a 2031 drive, a printer etc., to a C64 or another Commodore computer having the serial bus *;
- connecting the C64 family to virtual PC drives;
- connecting the PET family to virtual PC drives.
With a second PetBus interface, all the serial and parallel devices can be connected to the computers (PET and C64 family) through the ethernet network.
In other words, two PetBus devices are forming an extender of the IEEE488 bus and the IEC serial bus through the ethernet network.
With several PetBus interfaces, you can connect several Commodore computers to one device throught the network.
In one client PetBus you can define up to 9 PetBus servers.
The devices that are connected to each server must be defined in a configuration file.
For each device number, a substitute device number can be defined.
On the serial RS 232 port, the data traffic can be visualized in real time.

If you usually shop in a very live setting while looking for cartridges this is
usually likely to be more expensive than if you were to buy the product online.

This design has many perks like reducing paper curl and also the quantity

Howdy just wanted to give you a quick heads up and let you know a few of the images aren't
loading correctly. I'm not sure why but I think its a linking issue.
I've tried it in two different internet browsers and both show the same outcome.
