LAT...  I think I've seen one network with that in actual use - I 
believe it was coupled with uniplex and IBM 5250 serial terminals (going 
back to the mid 90s).  I now finally understand why the sysadmin there 
(a woman, which was rare in a male dominated field) was always 
exhausted, stressed, and wanting to throw terminals out the front door.  :)
