Hmm - that must be some kind of weird code for a computer, right?
'71 440... Does it maybe have a slash in there somewhere ('71/440)?

Obviously, the name "Charger" either implies it's a Texan computer, or
maybe that it was really quite fast for it's day. R/T's got me stumped,
unless it means "radio teletype", which seems unlikely...

Oh, and what on earth would it want buckets for? Does it leak coolant or
