I told my boss's boss I'd pass on the USENIX technical conference and just
go for LISA. He thought I meant an Apple LISA. Since we've joked about
putting in a VAXcluster (he used to work for DEC in the day), I figured
I'd look into how we could use LISAs in our environment. Found Xenix for
LISA. I was scared. I thought Lunix for C64/C128 was scary. There's also
apparently a couple thousand LISAs in a landfill around here somewhere.
Hmmm. Grendel cluster anyone?

I don't see much Sony NEWS/OS around anymore (was it wombat.gnu.ai.mit.edu
that was a NEWS box?). I still despise Ultrix 3 most, and AIX and HPUX are
close behind.
