That is awesome, I hope you can come to a meeting. Our next formal meeting will
have a presentation from Ingres which you may have used a long time ago.
I first heard of it reading The Cuckoo's Egg when I was ten or eleven
years old and was the first I ever heard of unix also. Did a lot of
admins in the Air Force talk about that book? I'm sure you have a lot of
stories and we would like to hear them.
