I just noticed DrRacket telling me Language: racket, with debugging ; memory limit: 128 MB immediatey reminding me of the 128 K that was available on the first Lisp system I got any actual use from -- one I implemented myself on an IBM 360/65. Back then there were rumours that some IBM customer somewhere in the world had a machine with maximum storage -- 16 MB.
And now we *restrict* ourselves to more RAM than one of the largest machines then had available. And I got a lot done on that 128K machine, three orders of magnitude ess than we hand out to students now. -- hendrik -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "Racket Users" group.
