I had a nightmare about 3270 terminals last night. I'm serious. I don't know
how they turned up in there, but the light pen was causing trouble.

Over in LargeNationalHMO where I (over)work as a sleepless resident, we're
riddled with Memorex Telex boxen, although they were slowly replaced by newer
"MTX" boxes that attach to standard SVGA monitors (very convenient), but
still have the light pen and standard 3270 keyboard. I've subtly tried finding
out where the terminal servers reside, but I suspect a lot of it is going to
be phased out when they go to a full electronic medical record -- right now
it's about half and half on an older MVS system.
