Sunos 4.1 was amazing. Talk about tight code.

So .. damn .. if the 3/260 was in the USA I'd pay to have it shipped to

Anyone going to BC from Toronto .. I'd help pay for gas to have the 3/260
put in the trunk :-)

If the old man was not on the Arrow project, I bet I'd still be close
enough to hop in the truck and come get the it. We lived in Streetsville

The 3/260 was also the box that box that had a network interface into the 5
Mbs Thicknet into
the 'you will never need the bandwidth' 10 Mbs the 3/50s used. At one point
it was handing
close to 50 boxes, before everything went 10 Mbs.

I've still got the chunk of Thicknet yellow coax and three taps that I keep
for memories.

-pete .. yes, gray hair
