C00002 00002 OPERATING NOTES
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.
