I've seen threads on here about Lantronics, but what does it do? There are no browsers to get on the web or are you talking about FTP sites on the web for strictly file transfer? I'm curious.
The main use would be to telnet to (or start running) a bbs system. That's what I run SFHQ on and there are quite a few others. You can do the same with APE and other solutions but I like the idea of the BBS operating without having to have a PC handle the communications. Works just as well with the 8-bits as well.
Then again, I hate to point out the obvious but... if you want one, get one! Don't overthink it. Let it be a doorstop then! As long as your kids aren't going to be missing any meals because you had to have one, who cares? What's the harm? Go for it. That's what collecting is all about. You don't see stamp collectors using their collections to mail out the electric bill payment, so go for it!
