Not just humor, Allison. Substantial accomodation for DEC network hardware
had to be made back then ('86..'87) because DEC had features which would
foul other hardware up if accomodation wasn't made. In order to keep from
bringing down the LAN, all software/configuration changes had to be made in
advance of connecting the first DEC hardware. It didn't always bring down
the LAN, but if that was your only worry, it certainly would.
