The Salvation Army, at least for a while (I'm sure they're all PC these days),
used Alpha Micro systems as local church management servers. I rapidly found
several holes in AMOS allowing me to get right down to a command line,
leading the local administrator to tell me not to do that again :-) Until
that time, though, I was able to use the system to dial-out and call my local
Internet dialup shell. But, of course, I did this after hours.
