Yes, this is a survey. I'd like to collect the experience/wisdom
available here.

Not sure if this adds any wisdom, but I have a Microvax II with serial
adapters, using screen + script + tip.

Maybe I'm the only oddball using a real VT525. It does, however, connect through a DECserver, so if I need dumps of the output, I can switch to some other machine and do cut and paste... But normally it's just the VT525 connected.
