        I found myself in the mood for revisiting the macabre side of
classic computing and decided to search for Therac stuff. See:

        Now it seems to me that the fellow who wrote this article was
pretty full of it. If you can get past his overuse of passive voice and
continual nominalization, you may note that many of his points are far too
theoretical and not supported by direct observation, knowledge, etc. For
example, he claims that this [perhaps] regenned rt11 monitor supports
multi-threaded execution to the degree of its enabling things like race
conditions, etc.

        Hindsight is 20/20, I guess...

just throwing it out there as discussion bait...
