|Computer||NCR Century 100,200, 8200 (many other models were available)
|In April 1969 I joined NCR in Birmingham, having been declared redundant (but no
redundancy pay) by English Electric (GEC). I went though a series of
courses on the Century at the Greenford Training centre. (to be continued)
|Programming|| Main language was NEAT/3 an advanced assembler language. I also used Cobol.
|Hardware|| C-100 2*4Mb removeable disks, 16/32 Kb memory (initially Thin-Film Rod),
Punched Card or Paper Tape reader, line printer. The C-200 was larger
with more power, memory, disk capacity, magnetic tapes etc. I don't
think NCR sold any C-300 machines in the UK, but they were used by
banks in Japan. The 8200 ran Century software but was based on the 605
|Software|| B1 - Simple OS, B2 - as B1 with "on-line real-time" partition, B3 - Multi-user system for Century 200 and upwards.
