Re: who put the BOMP in the BOMP DBOMP DBOMP ?

No - never that lucky. We were developing in COBOL and had to use
""overlays"" (if anyone remembers that) to get programs bigger than the
53K BG partition to run. Imagine, there was usually a small foreground
partition (later used for print spoolers like Grasp and wasn't there one
called Power?) AND the OS all in 64K. When I went to the New York
Times in 1970, they had a 360/40 with 128K and we though what a huge
machine that was.

Tim,

I was just talking to a peer today about 360-30s back in April of 1968.

Were you ever ""lucky enough"" to get the 64K add on memory to a 360?
