Well, maybe not on a classic computing mailing list?  I read pretty much the entire thread trying to figure out how this particular branch occurred, and I'm still mystified.  

Me, I suffer from ADOS: Attention Deficit... Ooh, Shiny!  That explains the contents of my basement.  Excuse me, I need to go figure out why my VAX 4000/300 is giving me an error code of 'E' on bootup.  <sigh>  It's been such a good machine for so long.  In fact, one of my co-workers learned assembly language programming on it when it was the departmental machine for a state university here in Washington.  -- Ian

The first rule of Asperger's Syndrome:  Don't talk about Asperger's
