Oh, I've read it all. I'm just of the opinion that following process,
collating examples, performing analysis, holding discussion, forming
consensus, trialling implementations, reviewing implementations, and issuing
specifications is a way to ensure that nothing gets done, ever.

The citation process started a year ago. There's still, apparently, nothing I
can use today - at least, nothing better than the ad-hocery I just created.

If a 6600 used paper tape instead of core memory, it would use up tape
at about 30 miles/second.
