Hmmm.. just in case it needs clarification, I did not mean to suggest that
there is 16-24KWords of 'other' memory in the machine. Each 8KWord memory
module in the 2116C is comprised of 3 cards (XY DRIVER, INHIBIT DRIVER and
SSA). There appear to be 2 or 3 INHIBIT DRIVER cards and 2 XY DRIVER cards in
the unit, however there are no SSA cards (on which the actual core resides).
In short, there is no memory in this unit.
