cottrell at NBS.

Look, those of you who are new to this discussion: it has already
been incontrovertibly shown that cottrell at nbs is one of those
irremediably brain-damaged people who think that all computers
should look like VAXen.  He's even shown VMS-loving tendencies.
So, let's not waste net time trying to shout him down, eh?
Jim, if you want to flame me, let's do it privately, eh?
