        Agreed. We don’t want to see you lose a finger. I was cringing when you opened the packages.

      Great to see the core storage array.
      I used to work for IBM and a colleague was tasked to find some core storage as the last ditch back up RAM for the Space Shuttle. He found a manufacturer that still had the equipment stored away and was able to construct new core storage for NASA.
      After the Challenger exploded on take off, they recovered debris from the bottom of the Atlantic and managed to recover the last moments of the flight telemetry data from it.
      Go Core Storage!
