Time sink!
      12/24/15 05:36 PM

Russell, the IBM 1401 we're talking about here had 1.4K memory in the
engineering model. The first ones delivered to customers had 4K and had
punched card input and output. A year later they shipped 8K versions, then
12K. Eventually, the largest was 16K.

With all that, we learned to write pretty tight code. <g>
