3B2!!!  Holy vi! Quick get me a Guinness, I'm having a flash back.  When I 
started working for PacBell, that was what nearly everybody in the company 
that had access to a computer used.  Dumb terminals on the desk top, and you 
logged into one of pbhya thru pbhyj, which was a bank of 3B2's buried deep in 
the bowels of Bishop Ranch.  I have not thought about 3B2's in a very long 
time.  I may have to spend the rest of the day taking medication for this.
