Good grief, Charlie Brown!  AllIn1 had it's own Bitnet-style routing syntax on VMS?  I am so glad I never knew that.

Did PMDF run until the end of VMS at AU?  I don't recall you ever mentioning the UCX stuff.  Of course you know I stayed as far away from VMS as was humanly possible :-)  (And just when did the 8650 get retired?  Did it spend any time keeping auvax company behind the woodshed?)
