  I got a call from a scrap place today and I made a quick trip out to see
what they had before the hurricane hits (it's due to cross DIRECTLY over
the place's location so I don't expect the stuff to be there come Sunday AM
since most of the stuff is out in the open). Got some DEC core memory so
the trip was worth it. One of the things that I found was a "Logic Rack"
made by (somebody) Research & (something). Sorry to be vague about the name
but I was in a hell of a rush. Anyway it said that they were a division of
XEBEC. The rack was ABOUT 8" or 10" thick and ABOUT 32" wide and ABOUT
seven foot tall and had HUNDREDS of small circuit cards that plugged into
it. None of the ones that I saw had ICs, just glass diodes, trqnsistors and
resistors. The cards are 4" long and 2 3/16" wide with a 16 position CINCH
contact on one end. The transistors that I looked at were all date coded
1969 but I saw what looked like it might have been a date on the rack that
said 1973. Anybody know what this is?
