Memories of running Mistress/Empress under CTIX come flooding back ...
Back in the day (circa 1987) I recall Henry Spencer was going out with a
woman who worked at Rhodnius (what that the name? it's been a while) on
the commercial product. While Henry has vanished from the face of the
Earth (it seems), Geoff Collyer might recall who she was, or maybe have
pointers/links to others who worked on the code.
