I last toured that computer facility in '98 - my boss was(and still is,

made sure resources actually were used properly.  Like the time he let me
resurrect an old DEC 3K (AXP? w/ 96MB RAM) for

love it. ;)  Oh well...we eventually moved the function to a U2, but the
DEC box did admirably until late 98....*sigh*
