And in the 60's, logic families were less well-defined. I still have
some Fairchild 8-bit addressable memories (TO-100 can) whose
datasheet claims DTL as the logic family. +6 for Vcc and...+7vdc for

I used subminiature tube sockets for my first transistor projects--
they were easier to find than transistor sockets. Some transistors,
such as the 2N109 required the use of sockets--they were too
expensive to solder into a circuit.
