So what does one do with a PLATO terminal?  I was acquainted only with
the PLATO IV terminal and, although I took a couple of CDC-mandated
courses on it (don't remember a thing), I mostly sneaked time to play

At one NCC, I remember asking the folks in the PLATO booth if they
minded if I checked out their setup.  Since there was virtually no one
around, I brought up AIRFIGHT.   Within 10 minutes, I had a crowd
straining for a peek.

That's now you sell hardware!
