[TUHS] What was your "Aha, Unix!" moment?

There's a small intersection between Lasseter and NYIT where I currently 
work. A friend worked there during the CGL/NYIT days, and when they 
closed up, I dumpster dived a lot of stuff.

Including the NFS 2.0 sources that Warren currently has in the TUHS 
archives ;)

Towards the end, they were using BSD 4.3 on Vaxen - I even got my hands 
on a couple of 750's, which have been ruined over the years because of 
environmental problems with the storage location. I do still have a 
complete set of boards.

I still have an RM05 pack, labeled /pix ... probably way past the 
ability to be read, I'm afraid, unless someone wants to sacrifice an 
RM05 drive to try.
