No one has a PDP-6. No one. :-(((

If I understand it correctly, HECNET is a DECnet network, right?
In that case, unless Peter or someone else has done the work to make the
Toad-1 speak DECnet, no one's Toad-1, Peter's or any other, will ever be
on HECNET. The management at XKL absolutely forbade the software people
to work on DECnet, for reasons obvious to anyone knowing the company history.
