I went to school in Dayton in 1966 for NEAT on the 315. I worked on it until 1970 when we went to a Honeywell system, because of too many head crashes on the Century during the evaluation. I loved working in NEAT at the assembler level. We also tried BEST and COBOL on the 315. The COBOL compiler did not work well, another reason we went to Honeywell. They had disk and a COBOL compiler that worked (for the most part).

I am looking for PHOTOS of the old relic.  Anyone know where I might locate them?

I don't know the CRAM, but it sounds similar to the IBM 2321 Data Cell Drive. They seem to be from the same time period as well.

There are quite a few ex-NCR 1960 vintage techs in Los Angeles. My training began with the NCR395, 400 then onto the Century and Criterion series. Dick Arnold pirated me into the LA Regional office, sent me to school for a year on all versions of NEAT and Cobol. Those were exciting days and they lead to a great career and lots of travel.

Somehow I ended up with a criter name plate and have a couple of photos of the St. Johns Hospital installation. No CRAMs but a clear shot of the Century 200 console, etc.

Lots of super people came out of NCR, I hope they are all doing fine.    

BP.

PS I'll check back here for replies.

I've forgotten the names of the people I work with back them.

I wish I could find a good image of a CRAM unit, no one believes me about what monsters they were.

I can let you have a picture of a Cram unit alone, as well as a picture of a cram unit connected to a Century 300

I worked with NCR from 1966 to 1978, first as a programmer analyst in Programming research in building 26 in Dayton, then in the Brussels support Center till 1978 with some occasional 1 - 3 months stays in Rancho Bernardo and Wichita

I started my programming experience in 1976 with NCR 299 and NCR 399. Later there was NCR Century 8250 - an outstanding computer of its time...

Because next year there will be 30 years since I became familiar with programming and NCR computers, some month ago I decided to collect materials (pictures, technical data) regarding old (2nd half of 20th century) NCR Systems, having in mind to create personal site about them.

Now it is possible to see the very first version of the site and you are welcome to this unofficial opening: http://www.thecorememory.com.

In case you have any pictures or texts regarding NCR conputers and want to share them with other people, please let me know.
