Title: System Running at Full Capacity
Date: March 1969
Theme: Milestones

    March 1,1969: The system was running at full capacity but was just generating enough revenue to cover the cost of renting the computer. Harold Feinleib and Nick Pisarro worked on changing the dispatching algorithm. Robert Jesurum worked on optimizing paging from a high-speed drum device. These changes increased the efficiency of the computer and made it possible to increase the workload and therefore the billing cycles.
