Can remember having to go through this rigamarole at work, circa 1978 :D ... was working for a big Anglo-American company at the time, in the computer department. You would NOT believe what was achieved back then, with virtually zero computing resources, compared to today. A big IBM mainframe was running everything necessary to keep this large company going - based in the UK with a trans-Atlantic link (that we controlled!) All the engineering design work, wages, accounts, procurement, international telecomms network - you name it, it went through the UK computer suite, which ran 24/7 for a minimum 5 days a week ... and all that on just TWO MEGABYTES of RAM!
To put that into perspective, my phone has 12 GIGABYTES of RAM..... :eek:
