Visual 1050 project. I have been trying to get CUTTER working again on my
IMSAI. THis weekend I am going to resume the PDP 11/40 project, and get
the 11/05 workspace ready.

In the early years of semiconductors most parts have three digit date codes.
You have to know the approximate decade the part was first produced to get the
Sometimes you have trouble telling the part number apart from the date code.
In the 1970s a lot of the 7400 series ic's had date codes like 7414 and a part
number like 7404.
I was always having trouble with those.
A good history of early transitor marking can be found here.
