RE: MULIC tapes



fixed

This was explained to me by an IBM engineer, who I guess knew what he was
talking about.  The experiences I have in this area do bear out what he told
me, though I accept he could be wrong.  I expect that IBM would change the
technique occasionally, perhaps with each range of machines, to confound
those that would try to bypass their licensing protection.  I have only used
this technique on an oldish 5xx system.

I'd always had the impression that this was not stored on disk, but instead
was stored in the control panel itself. Disk initialization, reloads, etc.,
have no effect on it.
