>They wouldn't have had enough VAXen to go around.

   That's what telnet is for. My entire class learned VAX assembly under
Ultrix on an 8600, which was also serving a bunch of other classes at the
same time. It wasn't fast, but it could handle a lot of simultaneous
compilation and assembly. What really killed it was when we all had to run
SPICE at the same time for EE classes.

   Phoenix.princeton.edu was commissioned my freshman year, 1986. It was
decomissioned the summer after I graduated, replaced with a Sun 4/6xx. RIP.
