Yeah, I would think that any non-control character would be a bit weird

I haven't run the same comparison with my "newsed" Indigo2; it's more fun to
sit at then to X into.

Yeah. I set the Xterms up with scrollbars, so there's hardly any need, and
I'm on a LAN with that machine, so Xon/Xoff requires very fast fingers.

Who made this circuit up for you anyway? Bought it in a shop? What a
horrible shoddy job they fobbed you off with with. Surprised they let you
have it in this room, anyway, the acoustics are all wrong. If you raise the
ceiling four feet, put the fireplace from that wall to that wall, you'll
still only get the stereophonic effect if you sit in the bottom of that
cupboard. I see you've got your negative feedback coupled in to your
push-pull input-output. Take that across though your headed pickup to your
tweeter, if you're modding more than eight you'll get wow on your top. Try
to bring that through your preamp rumble filter to your woofer - what'll you
get - flutter on your bottom.
Yeah, it seems to be the default shipped from Sun on Solaris 7. Oddly
enough, if I telnet in, I get a different bunch of key settings.

I use dtterm even under OpenLook (olwm) because it's easier for me to do
I don't use CDE (dtwm) much; it's prettier, but (a) it takes much longer to
start than olwm and (b) it seems to hose itself at the least provocation.
Thanks a ton.
