First, on the hardware front, there is nothing but good news. Current workstations in the ten to twenty thousand dollar price range have more than adequate capacity. Since SEP-67 we at SEP have acquired the new exabyte-style tape drive where a hand-sized tape holds two gigabytes of data. That is about two-hundred times more than adequate to hold the text and software and about twenty times more than adequate for the scanned figures. Personal computer diskettes are much too small for this application. CD-ROMs have held promise for a long time, and perhaps they will have a role to play when (as we are being encouraged to believe) system software is routinely delivered on them.
