> Mark dropped off a 24 channel cat 5 switch.

You mean Martin. There's no Mark.

Specifically, it's a power-over-Ethernet switch. We can use that as a 
regular network switch, but it will also supply power for our two IP 
cameras, which Martin previously supplied. The cameras have motion 
sensors so we can configure them to send alerts (to the chapter admin 
group: me, Corey, Jeff B., Dean) when they record anything outside of 
our docent hours.

Beside the two cameras, one port will connect to our office PC and 
another connect to the BBS for Telnet access via our LTE modem.

What should we do with the other 20 ports? Any creative (non-sarcastic) 
suggestions for ways to demo/teach vintage computing that would need a 
network? To put it another way: how might we grow into a 24-port switch?
