If DIAL was the chat-like command to send a message to a specific user 
in which you had to know the ID number of the TTY they were using 
(instead of a user name), I think it already existed in 1965 when I 
started using the Q32.

I remember it fondly -- we did a "teleconference on teleconferencing" 
which ran for some time and was written up in a document that I still 
have -- totally cool and inspiring even at 10 CPS on a TTY.
