<If you work for many companies and use one in a circuit, you will be fired
<without further ado. That was SOP at Martin Marietta when I was there. I
<even saw a manager back a guy into a corner to get him to save everyone th
<embarassment and just quit.

I would have gone for nothing less that total public humiliation.

<There is no justification for using such a device with today's circuitry,

MITS and IMSAI lived... and died by them. Myself they are ok for
non-critical timing. Unfortunately they were often used in critical
circuits, shame as there were parts that could be used for critical
timing but 7412X was not it!!
