I used to install Beehive terminals when I was with Western Union. In fact, I clearly remember installing a couple for UC Berkeley's Division of Library Automation, and a couple more at CSU Hayward. They were quite popular with OCLC (Ohio College Library Catalog), an organization that, apparently, had a deep impression on the formation of the first end-user friendly computer-based library catalogs.
And yes, they did have frequent failures. One of the more common was to lose the high voltage section to arcing.
I didn't know about these 'guides' until you posted. Neat idea! Methinks I need to write a few.
Thanks for the effort.
