Did you know that in 1954 IBM announced that they had developed an "electronic brain" capable of 10million operations per HOUR!

YES!

MIkes' picture:
That was the "RAMAC"... I remember it well... never did use it... just used the new stuff... 2311 2314 removable disk packs... That was a LONG time ago!

Harry:
I think that was the Model 704 computer... I think they had one at Norton Air Force base in San Bernardino, Calif.

Have Fun,
