    I keep seeing references to "The Blue Book". What, exactly, is that? I
    have a small (about the size of the 11/45 hardware manual) blue-covered
    paperback book that DEC put out a few years back called something like
    "Introduction to Local Area Networks". Is that "The Blue Book"?

has a blue cover and is 8.5"x11". I considered it the Ethernet Bible,
but I'm apparently in error since there have been changes.
