   Here is an excerpt from a recent post on a local bboard at C-MU
which contained advice for puzzled Unix novices.

    As it turns out, the padding in the /etc/termcap definition of
    "concept" is optimized for 1200 baud...

    /etc/termcap contains a definition for "Concept" (note the
    capital C) that is adequate for 9600 baud.

   This kind of thing can not be stopped by widely proclaiming that 
"Its not good style",  "It won't be portable",  etc.  But it can be 
prevented by making it impossible to do.
