Back in the day....  =)  In '90-'91 I used a Motorola 88k based
machine...  It was on Computer Science House at RIT...  Later it
got upgraded to a multiprocessor machine.  It had much oomph
compared to the other systems online at the time (a VAX 11/780
and a CCI Tahoe).  I don't much recall what OS it was running,
although I think it was something system V based...
