Ah. Didn't know the difference. Good to know.

If I weren't so far from home, I might be interested in one of these terminals,
just to add to the stable I already have (VT52, VT55, VT100, VT101, VT102, VT103,
VT105, VT125, VT220, VT241, Wyse 50, CiTOH 101, CiTOH 101e, Planar ELT320, and
maybe one or two more. I used to have a Beehive, discarded from OCLC, but it
was horribly contaminated in a basement flood 15 years ago and I pitched it).
