Sun server. They needed to get into the console program which requires a
terminal connected to the serial port in order to do this. Normally we would
have hooked a laptop up and used the terminal program for that. Problem is
the computer is classified and we can't hook any of our (unclass) laptops up
to it. Solution: I suggested I bring in my H19 "dumb" terminal, which has no
storage like a laptop. That passed muster and I brought it in the next day.
Hooked the thing up, it worked instantly and impressed the h--l out of
everyone (God, I love it).
