The Stanford Artificial Intelligence Laboratory  has a dual-processor
(DEC KL10/KA10)  time-shared computer.  It has  384K words of core
memory and an Ampex disk  file equivalent to the IBM 3330-11.
64 display consoles and a number of Teletype terminals are connected.

The  Operating  Notes  (SAILONs)  below  describe  the  operation  of
computer  programs  and  equipment  and are intended for project use.
This annotated list omits obsolete notes.

Notes that are available in hard copy form are marked with (H); those
that are on the disk are marked (DSK:<filename>); some are  available
in both forms.
