This reminded me of another gizmo I'd like to have...
How about a Bluetooth to Serial adapter? Routers don't (yet) have
iLO, but I have this fantasy about being able to walk into a colo
with a handfull of small adapters that I simply plug on to consoles
and then sit down with my laptop and can access all the serial ports
without having to run cables.
Talk about eliminating the rat's nest....
