I read a couple of threads in their entirety and all posts by Dennis Ritchie and /BAH (jmfbahciv at -- when I could still read Usenet at work (before the firewall blocked that port), alt.folklore.computers was one of the newsgroups I read there and I had Watched /BAH after seeing that she wrote a fairly large number of posts with interesting information about how things were "back then". I'm not sure exactly what she did but I think it was at DEC.
