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 was a computer operator on an NCR 315 in Liverpool, England.

They were noisy monsters.   The "double drop" was a regular event.

Our installation had four CRAM units.   I wonder if any of those machines still exist in a museum anywhere?

somebody wrote :
the thing great abpout the console was that it had an "Address Register", a group of lights that displayed the current address. this was good for program debbuging in a step by step mode. if I wrote a program for a customer, I would include a compare that met all possibility followed by GOTO 9669. IN the documentation i would say if a large "X" appeared on the console, don't call me, call hardware repair.

I think that this is helpful
