While I'm at it...
MessageJust remembered -- I think it might be that in the "Directive No." (top right corner), the "EL" indicates "Evans Laboratory". That's us!Or, as someone indicated by adding an apostrophe to the door of MARCH's basement storage room, "Evan's" laboratory! :)-----Original Message-----

Seriously, though, this is great stuff, however it turns out.
Along the lines of Will's observation, I was lucky enought to attend
two notable panel events last week - first the 45th anniversary of
the LINC Personal Computer (hi Bill) and then a few days later, a
panel at CHM celebrating the 30th anniversary of "the first TCP-based
transmission between three dissimilar networks". In both cases, one
or more of the original Principal Investigators on the projects were
present along with affiliates and support staff. While the
presentations were incredible, they were also sprinkled with comments
like, "No - that was in 19xx, not 19yy" or "-- so that's how that
happened - I always wondered why...". Primary sources, but...
And re Evan's other OT observation about lodging, I used PriceLine
bidding for both my room and my car. I drove a Chevy Cobalt for
$15/day and I stayed in the ExtendedStay America in San Jose (midway
between the airport and CHM) for $55/night.
