WOW! But, at the end, he says the 707x is a 6-bit machine.
It seems, in fact, that the 707x was a WORD machine, not a
character machine. There is a fair amount of info on it
that seems to confirm this. Also, the stated speeds seem to
be invariant for short vs. long (10-digit) operations,
pretty much proving it was a word machine.
