Anyway, what was the model 6?  Card only?  Were there others?
The Model 6 was magnetic only, no cards. It was desk sized with the
printer in front of the operator.  No CRT, everything was logged through
the printer.  There was a drawer for the fixed disk and the removable. I
think...  was it a 1/4 meg per disk for memory?  Anyway, I remember we
used to have one removable disk for an application like Accounts Payable. 
I think I had 5 or so for Inventory control and sales history.  There was 
5k of core, of which IBM required 2k for the operating system, leaving 3k
for user applications. (ever wonder what Columns 7 -11 were for on the H
specs? that was so you could get plan on taking some extra 1/4k's if you
needed them.  *grin*  I remember taking out edit words so a program could
compile without overlays.)  As Bill Cosby says..  "and that's how  I met
your mother."
