Have an upvote for the Silicon Graphics references - while working as in my first full IT Admin role after graduating, at a local University back in the "Windows for Workgroups running on top of Netware 3.11/3.12" days, I was then given the task of looking after our Science Faculty's SG Workstations... Indigos, Indigo2s, etc. What a way to learn unix (well, Irix actually...). Just don't remind me of the seriously broken TCP/IP stack that Irix had been cursed with, which meant that getting things like TCP wrappers to work was... interesting, to say the least.

Wow - memories - wrote my final year Comp. Sci BSc. Dissertation at Portsmouth Uni in 1992 using Impression an an Archimedes 420, and was then printed out on, of all things, a (borrowed) Canon BJ10 Ex !!! Four of us Acorn advocates at Uni banded together and printed out our dissertations this way. We went through a quite a lot of ink IIRC ..... happy days (and greetings to RJW, Flossy & Old Simon if any of you are reading this :o)
