A person who got a PHd in EE in 1964 is not well versed in computers
since there were very few. I started my business and it was me and a
Secretary and my hand written papers had to be corrected for my terrible
spelling and sent on to the Customer. Funny, but my Doctoral project was
proving that tri-state logic is required between the kernel and memory.
The Company developed Cryostat's and detector arrays. They were
bought and when they worked I sold the patents for real money. The 8
other people shared in the money and I closed it.
