    From an old Plush Royal 1060-S.

    Did Mullard have a factory in Ireland? :D

    Is that Plush kind of like a tuck-and-roll Twin Reverb? I remember Plush ads in Guitar Player ages ago -- "Join the Plush Rush" with a picture of the Jeff Beck Group w/Rod the Mod.

    You mean like did RCA have a factory in Russia? Worked on a Twin Reverb with a quad of MIR RCA 6L6s.
    Come to think of it a Bassman 10 was here with a pair of made in England 6L6s that looked like the exact same tube. :)

    "Connoisser"????

    I'm guessing this ad is pre-spell check ;)

    What is this "spell check" of which you speak? This ad probably ran in '69 or '70. The IBM PC wouldn't come along for another 11 years!

    Gosh the 360... I'm ex-FAA, we had the 360/9020s running up until the late 80's...

    I'll stick with my mighty Imsai VDP 42, with TWO floppy disks!

    During the Cold War at the time that American British tube tech was phasing out, there were ‘paths’ created for the acquisition of tubes from behind the Iron Curtain. Those ‘British’ and ‘RCA’ were relabeled Soviet tubes...or so I would guess.

    I powered up my TRS80 Model 1 the other day, and it started right up with its mighty 16k RAM upgrade. Git your basic on!! Unfortunately the cassette storage didn't work.

    Apparently there are some US ICBM subs out there with extremely old targeting computers that are still in service. And the FAA's system (from what I've heard) is still much derived from the SAGE system started in the late 50's. A friend in the FAA awhile back was telling me about storage rooms full of 1meg hard drives....

    STARS and ERAM are the current automation platforms for the enroute and terminal environments. I thought you were trying to say SAGE was something other than a very distant memory. The most recent 1M hard drive I've seen in the 35+ years I worked for FAA would have been in about 1984, and that was in an office automation system (C/PM), not an AT system.

    Wow, that was my first computer. Much later I got a 5.25" floppy drive (for hundreds of dollars), but used cassette storage for years. One of my first electronics projects was a driver for the cassette deck--must have been an amplifier/gate/expander to try to improve binary fidelity. It did improve things...a bit. Or a byte.

    I made my first microcomputer, using a National Semiconductor SC/MP around 1976 or 1977, while looking after some IBM System/7s.
