Installed the plugin, haven't had a chance to test it thoroughly but
it seems to work fine.  Very cool project, though!  My first contact
with the Internet was in 1991 at UIUC (jht56010 at uxa.cso.uiuc.edu!) and
while I was probably using IRC, FTP and telnet more frequently, I do
remember gopher and definitely ph!  Wish I still had a copy of my ph
record...  (Person-Name!)

Ahh, fond memories of the dorm labs with the PS/2s and Mac SE/30s
(some of which ran the networked multiplayer Sceptre game) and the
lovely rows of even then very outdated terminals in the basement of
the English building.  Wish I knew what kind they were (tho I believe
uxa.cso was a Sequent mini.  Anyone on the list there back then?)
