Was sleuthing the web and came across this and cried a little:

I got my first RS/6000 around that time, but probably wouldn't have
known what the 3B2 was if I saw once since I didn't read through the
Bell Labs UNIX articles until recently.  I'm 22 years young so it
seems I missed the first and second go around of these guys, and
what's left is dwindling.
