 I have some Tapes and documentation from Northern Telecom from one of my
curbside finds. The tapes are labelled 5 Fifty 5, which I imagine is the
program name and 1600bpi 310Hci . There is also rather thick book SL-1
Business Communications System. Generic X11. Anyone wants it it's available
for shipping costs. Hate to toss it as it must be valuable to someone into
