Nope, just a picked of bits in the ol' noggin. 520 and 1040. I
should remember that now that tax time approacheth. :-) (The base
Federal income tax form in the USA is known as a "Form 1040" and is
dreaded and despised by all). Let's see, I have seven wives, all
over 65 and blind, that's 21 deductions...
When the 16K DRAMs were first coming out, there was a serious
shortage of them for a time (yields were very low), so the "half
good" parts were better than nothing. The moment the manufacturers
got 16Ks popping out at a reasonable yield rate, the "half goods"
disappeared like a bad dream.
