We had multiple VT100s and VT101s and VT102s but at some point in the
company's growth phase, we switched to  Citoh 101 and 101e terminals
for cost.  We probably ended up 20% DEC and 80% Citoh.

Somehow we also got 4-5 VT220s.  In 1985, they were fantastic
terminals (except for the width of the LK201 keyboards as mentioned
elsewhere).  I also used the current loop input on the VT220, when I
was debugging the serial clock on my PDP-8/L.  Very handy.
