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.
