Yes, I have to admit to getting ISODE and PP going under SunOS and
SunLink7 for just that sort of horrible mess over X.25 when the UK
academic network (JANET) was still tied to the goal of becoming OSI
rather than going TCP/IP. Back in the day when the UKMM list argued
about transitioning from UK to GB.

gb. 360000 IN TXT "This domain is frozen and will be phased out"
If X.400 email had happened we'd all have A4 business cards..
