You could be an archmach-er if you remember:
* the spelling "arqmaq" (was it Bill Donaldson who started that?)
* EOM (http://pangaro.com/ue/EOM-1977.pdf)
* Architecture Machinations

This conversation made the phrase "flush VTOC cache" pop into my mind.
Did that relate to early MagicSix problems?

In 2003 I tracked down Mike Miller (msmiller@xxxxxxxxxxxx).  He and
Paula Mossaides (pxmossaides@xxxxxxxxxxxx) were living in Atlanta at
that time.

Paul Pangaro is pan@xxxxxxxxxxx

Seth Steinberg was at sasteinberg@xxxxxxxx a looong time ago, anyone
know where he is now?

Anyone know the whereabouts of:
Mike Kazar
Chris Herot
Steve Gregory
James Taggart

Geek's list is a good one.  I would add:

What do you do when the Kramtek wedges?

How do you refresh the compiler?

What was found in the Color Xerox machine after it jammed?

How do you know if you should be on this list?
If you had an account on Magic Six, certainly.  If Magic Four or earlier,
you're golden!
What was the name of the text editor whose releases were named after colors?
Who was Pamela, and why did Heckbert care?
If you ever used the "read_block" function on the (K)Ramtek frame buffer,
you belong!
Do you know what a TBC was?  Do you know how color is encoded in NTSC video?
Can you remember what the "organic air conditioning" was?
Do you know what sucked?
Can you navigate around Aspen, Colorado even though you've never been there?
Has your software ever gotten a "Bad luck fault"?

Probably "worked in Building 9" is good enough, right?
