Ah, that brings back memories.   It was after we got our own "private" 
imps at BRL.

The BRL hosts of the day had the name BRL-XNNN where the X was the name 
of the division
V - Vulnerability/Lethality Division
S - Systems Engineering and Concepts Analysis Division
T - Terminal Ballistics Division
I - Interior Ballistics Division
L - Launch and Flight Division.

B appears becvaues SECAD was the Ballistic Modelling Division earlier.

Mike wanted to callel BRL-SEM (the SECAD Experimental Machine) BRL-SEX 
Jake Fienler at the NIC refused to accept it.
