I saw itfirst suggested in dean halfords 1963 letter. This was done for several reasons rolm data ports did not support hardware flow control, which is essentialfor error-correcting data-compressing modems slip and ppp connections could not be made through rolm ports (at leastnot by an ordinary mortal). These are monochrome text terminals with good editing capabilties (foremacs) and solidly built.
We werepreparing a firing table for each gun, with maybe 1,800 simpletrajectories. A year later ibm agreed todevelop and construct the machine, an electro-mechanical device called theautomatic sequence controlled calculator, ascc( ), the first automated general-purpose (butnot electronic or stored-program) computer. The series1 computers were later replaced by ibm7171s, 4994s, and tn3270 software in terminal servers and on unix hosts.
