Welcome to IWETHEY!

New Believe it or not, I worked on that sucker!
Way down the food chain.

IBM had a contract on a triplex computer system, 3 CPUs with shared memory and what IBM called LCS or Large Capacity Storage. If you can believe it, LCS it was 2 MB! But, in those days, memory was used judiciously.

I was one of the designers on the basic (up to duplex) CPU, so when the guys doing the triplex design got in trouble, I got to help to make it work. It was sad to get that project cancelled.

The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that "my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge."

New Heh.. Synchronicity! aka Jung again, he is Evrywhar..
Have a friend with the name of (either the whole MOL or) that compact ~~Cassegrain spy-scope module..
How odd that her name has ... quite different associations; while you were CPU-ing we'unses were connecting-up two accelerators to create the [Super-Hilac + Bevatron]
--one located up a nearby hill-side!--heavy ions-to-H.E. "Bevalac". Guess we were both having fun-with-Science, eh? (And I was learnin 'bout Geo Boole via a PDP-8)
available to moi for a while: to see if I Could create a program to convert stuff on an oily yellow paper tape (BCD-decimal or something) and display numbers on an ASR-33.
Hey.. I Could whilee determining that I'd never become a programmer/would always choose the NYT Crossword over any 'rithmetic-digitations thankyouverymuch.

and PS ANOTHER Synchro!
Al Gore on PBS right NOW with book-cover for The Assault on Reason as intro backdrop!!
Jeez ... out there in the Bardos .. am *I*preprogramming our PBS tepid-progressive News Clowns??

Guess I gotta make addendum to the Gore review.
(We're still all doomed with that gaggle of clinically-Evil mofos at the levers of the Entire fucking Planet.)
New Synchronicity, indeed! I caught the Al Gore segment on PBS last night.
He's more optimistic about the future than I am.
