Ohhhhh RSTS!
Light bulb goes off in head - light leaks out nose and ears from empty skull.

Thought that sounded familiar, VT50DPY was the continuously updating SYSTAT
The "bring the system to it's knees" program (along with Plane)?
Real VT100's had a hardware VT52 emulation mode, or you could NOT use DCA
and it should run on a VT100.

But, a 7 character program name?? Thought RSTS and the others were 6.3?

Gotta get RSTS system going here.
As soon as I get my SCSI drives going: 1 for RT11, 1 for RSX11M, 1 for RSTS,
as soon as I get my UC08 going,
as soon as I .... get my teletype <he he>
