Good point Bill, which, if so, would place the comment at or about the
start of the cellfone introduction.

@Jim, maybe it's more a telco/2600 thing? 

None of my overnite greps through old saved chats/snippets came up with
anything remotely like it, sadly.

I tried a few gopher/archie searches but the system is in very poor
shape these days, a shadow of it's early 90's usefulness. 

Maybe it was on Fidonet or similar?

Anyone else have any input? Please ask your old folks ;)
