Looks like it's perched on top of some Mac A/V model... maybe the seller
is still trying to pay that off. :)

I've setup a fax machine and fax modem in the house within the past
couple years to scan in some documents. (fax machine = decent enough
B&W scans with an idiotproof sheet feeder)
I've got 24 analog ports on my phone switch so this is fun to play with
That said, I've been BBS-curious about trying some actual dialup BBSes
in the world. The outside phone line doesn't get used for anything
