Disclaimer: Hey, I understand VAXen and VMS. That's what I get paid for.
My understanding of astronomy is purely at the amateur level (or below). So
unless what I'm saying is directly related to VAX/VMS, don't hold me or my
organization responsible for it. If it IS related to VAX/VMS, you can try to
hold me responsible for it, but my organization had nothing to do with it

VMS and VAXen I can understand with clarity,
For these Caltech supplies me with the source of my prosperity.
I follow as an amateur the science of astronomy,
So things I say just might be wrong so don't take me too seriously.

For answers wrong on me should fall, so please, the Caltech folks, don't flame.
