yay! We had those at University (1981) -- they replaced the
teletypes :D :D

You could open the little door to the left of the keyboard and
play with the DIP switches for parity & baud rate.

Emacs on those terminals was a pain -- e.g. ^S/^Q flow control
was needed, and no Meta key or function keys -- so it's just
as well I was a vi user :-)
