Some guy from IBM came to MIT to give a talk about some database system that
they had, and he kept referring to 'DASD'. Puzzled looks. Finally some brave
soul stuck up his hand, and asked was a DASD might be. Quoth the guy, 'round
brown'! :-) He was actually very sharp, and we liked his system, but I don't
recall anything about it, other than that line!
