Comment Re:How unfortunate: Wyse and not Wang (Score 1) 95

Lo these many years ago, I worked for a company that used a Wang VS system. We were testing some voicemail thing they were trying to sell us. As I recall, the Wang system wasn't smart about detecting when someone hung up the phone and you were supposed to hit the "#" key on the keypad when you were done with it. We had a training class where one of the women in the department was going over the functions from the phone keypad and she said "Always pound off the Wang". I was snickering for the next week.

It is easier to change the specification to fit the program than vice versa.
