This brings back memories...not of the muppets, because
I grew up without a TV. But my first internet access,
via my university, was through a bunch of DECs that
had been purchased roughly about the time of Jim's
death. (I, however, did not use the system until early
The server was called 'henson' and the workstations
were honeydew, janice, gonzo, animal, beaker,
scooter, waldorf (and other names
I can't remember--fozzie? statler? There
were 9 workstations in total). It was set up so that the dial-in
modems and the dumb terminals could connect directly to
the workstations. I always did that, because henson
had too many people logged in. Thus my favorites
were honeydew and animal, because they tended to be
ignored by others and have the lowest loads.
From this I deduce that animal and honeydew are
unlikely to win the poll, seeing as they already lost
the popularity contest at the university, although
animal seems to be off to a reasonable start.
