Hello Calvin,

Where are they still getting DASD? I thought the DASD on 38s was troublesome even when they were new...

It think it's somewhat like my "tube electronics" hobby. By now each and every CRT with flawed glass cones has imploded and the remaining ones are flawless enough and do not break, eventhough they're nearly 70 years old.

Yes, I realize that DASD is a mechanical contraption and as such suffers from wear and tear. Thus "somewhat". :-)

:wq! PoC
