I understand how core works, I'm just _seriously_ doubting the guy's post 
where he talked about modifying a core "ROM" by hand by changing the 
wiring.  However, since I'm not hugely familiar with what went on during 
that era, I want to make sure where I stand before I tell him he's full of 
it. :)
