#partial #introduction The RELAY network on BITNET was the inspiration for IRC. Nodes were known by their address (RELAY@BITNIC) and a nickname, traditionally a location (New_York).

Rumor has it that the chief student operator (me) picked that because no one knew where the heck Potsdam was. See http://phrack.org/issues/23/5.html for a partial node list and a few tidbits of ancient network history.

Applicants vary in their ability to read between the lines, so here I am reading between the lines of what they've sent, to guess if they can do what we didn't ask them to tell us about. Blehhhh.
