There were no Web sites when I started with an Army course "Introduction to Computers" in 1964. One of the sub-courses was Magnetic core memory.

Ah yes. A failed attempt on the Philadelphia experiment. They got the core memory wrong.

Yesterday upon the stair
I met a man who wasn’t there
He wasn’t there again today
Oh, how I wish he’d go away

When I came home last night at three
The man was waiting there for me
But when I looked around the hall
I couldn’t see him there at all!
Go away, go away, don’t you come back any more!
Go away, go away, and please don’t slam the door

Last night I saw upon the stair
A little man who wasn’t there
He wasn’t there again today
Oh, how I wish he’d go away
