RE: trivia (little quattro content)

BTW, speaking of car and networking trivia...... why was cabletron's very first
product (other than cables), a TDR cable tester, called the TDR-4000? Because 
I was driving a brand-new 85 4000Q at the time (bought for me by cabletron)
and that's  what I wanted to name the product!


BTW, speaking of Lotus cars...some computer trivia.  The reason SGI named
an entire line of systems Indigos and made them that same color...is
because the president owns one sweet looking Lotus painted that exact
color.  Take an SGI "Purple Box"(as they are affectionately known) and plop
it down next to his car; perfect match.
