CMU, ISU, NCSU all use something like it.  I've seen similar but
different examples at labs at UFL, ASU, UMich, OSU, and a bunch of
other universities.  And, as I mentioned, there is at least one large
financial institution in NYC (I cannot provide the name due to NDA).

I had already given one, but you clearly ignored it.  I've now
provided more.
