Good point Bill, which, if so, would place the comment at or about the
start of the cellfone introduction.
@Jim, maybe it's more a telco/2600 thing?
None of my overnite greps through old saved chats/snippets came up with

I tried a few gopher/archie searches but the system is in very poor

Maybe it was on Fidonet or similar?
Anyone else have any input? Please ask your old folks ;)
