Probably.  IIRC she refused to post a photograph.

That would explain "her" difficulty in understanding gozinta/gozouta

Snide answers to Sylvia's History question do not redound well to your
status.

Why is the manner in which I address Sylvia or the status of my "status"
any of your concern?

  You have been "something" for a long time. Not sure you want to hear
what that is though.

Maybe it would be easier to explain to Sylvia that the
reason we have cross-over cables is because cross-under
cables are too expensive to build.

  Have not seen anything from her today.  Perhaps *she* has crossed over.

No, that somebody invented the "null modem" (cable).  It took them
until the invention of the Ethernet to invent the "crossover
cable".  ;-)

  That person was NOT A. G. Bell, however.

Sure it was, he just wasn't the only one or necessarily the first.

Exactly who invented the telephone first is largely a question of how you
define "telephone" and whether or not you want to trust people who might have
built such a device but didn't document it for posterity...

  Wrong. The INVENTOR was Meucci, and that was DECADES before Bell ripped
him off.  Bell was a thief that had huge research backing.

You're either trolling, or extremely stupid. Either way, the solution is:

It would surely be much nicer if equipment at both ends of the link used
just a single pair to communicate in both directions, full duplex, too.
If the plain old telephone system can do it, why not data communications
equipment?

No distinction between DCE or DTE, only one single pair of wire, only
one type of cheap cable, cheap and simple connectors, no fuss, no
confusion.

Maybe it's this way because it was designed by a committee?
