Not sure if this guy is still with us, but wanted to read "Confessions
of a Hearing-Impaired Engineer", if anyone has a copy.

BTW, "Where Wizards Stay up Late" is an entertaining book about the
origins of the ARPAnet.  It even has some of the first (hand-drawn,
natch) network diagrams...

Apparently, nuclear holocaust considerations did not really play much
of a part in ARPAnet's genesis, despite folklore to the contrary.
Withstand a nuclear war was not a design consideration (for most of
the key players); any such properties were side effects of the real
design considerations and decisions.

 death may die." - H.P. Lovecraft, The Call of the Cthulhu
