Some zombies just refuse to die!
I sold 3-Com their first 100 IBM PC's back in the early 1980's in the Silicon Valley. That is where I met Bob Metcalfe and Howard Charney. When I was working in the Boston area in the 1990's I used to dine with Bob before our IEEE meetings. I doubt he has any financial interest in the 3-Com legacy now, but it is interesting how things roll out!
