         I'm going to be contrary here -- Bob isn't taking credit 
that HE deserves.  I seem to remember Bob telling how he connected 
two different machines into the school's network, not knowing exactly 
what would happen.  But it all worked!  And that was the beginning of 
the TCP/IP feed we have today.

         Bob, I'm doing this from memory, so you might want to 
correct some of this information.
