TOUGH but oh so gentle

TOUGH on Oil-Pumping • GENTLE on Cylinder Walls

What if you choose HP products to enhance your productivity? (May, 1980)

Being immersed in our current open source rich culture, the idea of paying $4000 ($11,400 in 2013 dollars) for a Pascal compiler seems a bit mad.

Also, while reading in software via a giant spool of bar code is pretty weird, it is not the crazy method I teased earlier. That’s coming next week.

What if you choose HP products to enhance your productivity?

For example: PASCAL/1000, a modern computer language that makes programs simple to write, easy to debug, and inexpensive to maintain.

Pascal/1000 is Hewlett-Packard’s new, high-level, structured programming language for HP 1000 computers. By “structured,” we mean that a Pascal program is written in modules in much the same way that a building is put together with standard building blocks.

In Fatima the Difference is Quality (Sep, 1951)

That’s a pretty specific claim. Not the best cigarette, just the best long cigarette.

In Fatima the Difference is Quality

“I smoked FATIMAS when I was a Midshipman. I still do… because they have a better flavor and aroma. FATIMA is easily the best of all long cigarettes.”

VICE ADMIRAL Leland Lovette
U. S. N. (RET.)

FATIMA Best of All Long Cigarettes
