  SNA
  
      (SNA) IBM's proprietary high level networking
     protocol standard, used by IBM and IBM compatible
     mainframes.
  
     Also referred to as "Blue Glue", SNA is a bletcherous protocol
     once widely favoured at commercial shops.  The official IBM
     definition is "that which binds blue boxes together."  It may
     be relevant that Blue Glue is also a 3M product commonly
     used to hold down carpets in dinosaur pens.
