My first TTY was the DECwriter II. My first terminal was a Beehive BH100. I
hacked together some TECO to support it on a local vi/emacs/EDT-like visual
mode editor... IIRC, the escape sequences were put into specific numbered
registers as TECO macros. A poor man's curses in the mid 70's.... I thought
it was super cool until I discovered emacs at school on our 11/750...
