Tsk.  Note the April 1, 1990 date, as it is significant.

And Ramesh, we need a little more detail.  What do you mean by "a lo-tech lan application"?

A lan built of low-technology components?  An application that uses the Lan, but in a "low-tech" way?

Sneaker-net (where you transfer files between computers via a portable storage medium) is a "lo-tech lan". Therefore, a "lo-tech lan application" would be an application that writes to a floppy disk. The bigger the disk, the lower the tech.

Thanks for the great laugh.  Oh, I never knew this existed --  that's just so funny.

Thanks, guys, for the laugh.  You made my day!
