I'm still documenting the system, first of all. Second, my
understanding is that this system was used by the DEVELOPERS at
who developed some of those scanning systems used by the
Bureau. Many computers were used of course by the Census Bureau,
many locations - I've read as much. As for the Dr. Dobb's article,
appreciate a specific reference so I could look it up.
