At this point there are way too many people to thank individually, so this
is a blanket thank you. Thanks.

There were a few people who were curious as to the accual key strokes used
to send a break to the system. Well in Hyperterminal (which as it turns
out is _not_ made by MS) it's the Ctrl key plus the Pause/Break key
(Ctrl-Break) which I'm sure astounds most of us. ;-)

I'll also add that you must set your terminal type to "tty" for the PC
console to work.

A few people suggested using the terminal program Terra-term, which is
supposedly free for individual use. I personally have not used this yet
but I plan on checking it out when I have some time to stop and think.
