I was looking for a source for some Fairchild uL914's (DTL NOR gate)
and came across this:

  The Fairchild UL914; DUAL NOR GATE was the ONLY MEMORY and REGISTER
  UNIT used in the ENTIRE construction of the ON-BOARD Navigational Computer.
  Redundancy and Failure Rates of a NEW Integrated Circuit family (RTL)
  dictated the SAFEST possible Design for such an Incredible Mission.
  Round 8pin EPOXY package.
  4 pieces available $ 99.95 each

Other obscene prices, such as $35 2732's, are to be found at:


(I can remember when the local Radio Shack had blister-packs of uL914's
for probably $.79 each. I believe they sold a "stack-it-yourself" binary
counter kit that used two uL914's for each bit. Anyone got a Radio Shack
catalog from 1976 or so to check my memory here?)
