Brad: Thanks, but I've aparently got a copy that I've "fixed up" to use
on Linux already. I'd forgotten about it until I went looking for
where I put my copy of VTserver.

I hope you have Lynx at least ;)

You've got issues, man. Either that, or need to lay off the pipe a
bit.. Jeeze. You know, change *is* sometimes a good thing (not
speaking to this particular example, but you seem to be stuck a bit in
1984 sometimes). Of course, I'm one of those evil people that likes
their arrow keys to be usable in their shell (bash) and editor (vim),
finds a use for machines that can display/edit high-res pictures and
video, etc.

I still enjoy playing with RT-11 on my PDP-11, but I realize that it
can't be the be-all end-all, and that my PC (and UltraSparc, Alpha,
PowerPC, POWER, etc) machines do have some very good uses. It's hard
for me to "multitask" with a VT220, etc the same way I can with a GUI.

Sigh. Ok, I had to get that off my chest. Now, back to the VAXen.
