$ set bandwidth/waste=high

I know this is a waste of bandwidth, but can somebody point me to the
intriguing little Star Trek/Unix bashing story. You know, where they
are on the starship "enterp::vax" & beam down to this foreign Unix
planet.

This reminds me of another parady that I read called "DEC Wars".  It is a
very amusing Star Wars parady.  I do not have a copy of it so I can't help
anybody find it.

1. NT-Unix war is a contiunation of VMS-Unix war (?)


I was at a DEC/MS conference on Windows NT last fall, and DEC went out of their
way to say NT was the successor to VMS.

The one class on porting Unix to NT was worth going just to watch the hair
on the back of the Unix guys necks stand up <G>.
