I had a Varian 620F a long time ago. It was a whole bunch
of wire-wrap boards. It sort of tried to work, but was very
flaky. I was able to store some words into the core memory,
but it seemed like every couple minutes it would zero out a
word or two (I guess it was failing to write back the
contents after the destructive readout.) Without
schematics, it was impossible to do much about it.
