Issue No. 05 - May (1978 vol. 11)
A very common occurrence in most aspects of computer system design is a variation of the "here's how we did it" approach in which a description of some element of a computer system is given without any explanation of the rationale that led to the finished product. Discussion on considerations such as design objectives, environmental and cost constraints, and the anticipated workload is often brief or non-existent.
