Well, I think one is coming together with my suggestion.  I'll be on
it (and we'll announce it here on nanog) so people can drill me

Actually, I think @Home is large enough to be using contractors.  I sent
a resume their way, but no bites ;)

Yeah, I had the same assumption when I ran into the problem for the
first time (vt100 escape code timing not tight enough), so it was
nice to hear about the U-D-L-R keys working.

I always thought the newsgroups were not vendor-specific enough...
