when browsing the google news archive I found several references to "halt and catch fire"
instructions on core memory based computers. The Honeywell minicomputers are also mentioned.
The assumption is: If the processor gets into an indirect accessing loop on the same memory
location (infinite) it will overheat the core and destroy it.
What do you think? Do I have to be careful? I never thought I could program my computer to death.
And such problems aren't mentioned in my programmers' guide and operation manuals.
Btw all my core memory is ok...
What's your opinion?
