  Yup, and I agree with him!  You can turn your electricity/gas/etc into
heat in something boring like a furnace, or in something interesting
like a big computer.  I've yet to turn on my building's main gas feed
this winter, because I'm running a VAX-7000 and a few big PDP-11s in
here.  The DECsystem-2020s are next.  It's good for the soul.

  RIP Mark Crispin.
