Mebibit's are bits that you actually own, rather than are owned by the company that you work for...  Seriously though, thanks for pointing this out.

"MT4C1024 one-mebibit dynamic random access memory (DRAM)"

megabit?

And to explain the title, a coworker and I had a 20 minute argument with a hardware manager about the execution of our program. We assured him the program would execute within the 77 millisecond window between interrupts and he argued that our program could not be that fast.

At the end of it he asked, "What are them thar milli-seconds?"

We don't expect the body to be found.

Yeah, you're probably right.  I had a few other items I decided to get rid of because they didn't really fit in, but a couple substitutes could have been good.

I might have filled in a bit between vacuum tube flip-flops and DRAM...  ;-)

To say that Andy Weir's The Martian is an exploration of math, Mars, and feces is a slight simplification. I doubt that the author would have any complaints, though.
