Which reminds me, when the extension to ethernet clusters was
first cooked up they were going to call it Local Area Vaxcluster,
and obviously shorten it to LAV. Luckily someone in the UK
suggested that "I'm just setting up a JOHN" is how it would
get parsed over here and the name sprouted a new capital

Now back to weird ways of reducing MicroVAX performance ...
