  when he first NeXT cube arrived at the U of Oslo, I found two interesting
  things: (1) it had a _real_ dictionary on it, Merriam-Webster's Ninth
  Collegiate, and (2) it had a _real_ Common Lisp on it, Allegro CL from
  Franz Inc.  unfortunately, it was locked up in a room and was not even
  made accessible to the systems hackers, only academic employees and some
  graduate students.
