Can one operate a 2716 with +10 volts for Vcc?  The datasheet seems 
to say that the limit for Vcc on the Inmos part is +11v/(10v 

This is really odd as I was cleaning out some stuff the other day and 
I came across three big 3-ring binders from about 1990 titled "The 
Modern IC Databook" from WEKA.  It was a subscription service where 
updates would be sent out monthly and you'd go through the hell of 
"Remove page A-324 and substitute pages A-324 and A324a..."    
Included was a service for reseraching unknown ICs--just give them a 
call and get a FAX a few days later.

At any rate, I was leafing through the "Memory" section and came 
across the aforementioned CMOS EPROMs.  My reaction was "Why, in 
1991, would anyone even care about such antiquated parts?"  I guess 
Will answered that one.
