Well, I've never worked with DECnet, and really don't know it's application
for that matter. I assume these would go hand in hand typically :)

As far as the simple network implementation, that really was my motivation,
as I'm not really a seasoned developer; I thought it would help me hone my
low level skills, if not to be obsoleted or dropped in a revision or two.

I'll look into another area which I may be of use, or do you have any
