I remember using Hazeltine 2000s with a HP TSB system in the early 70's. They
were funny because they had (I think) core memory, so some of what was on the
screen when they were powered down showed up when powered up again. The
old screen data was always corrupted, presumably because unlike processor
core, they didn't bother to power it down or up carefully...
