And don't forget...

d) Back in those days, you had to keep winding the clock :-)

Actually... did you know that, in the early days, asynchronous logic was the norm. This was for several reasons:

a) Synchronous techniques were not well understood.

b) Synchronous logic used more transistors, which were expensive

c) Everything was crafted by hand -- no automatic tools.

I love asynchronous logic

I don't know why, but I love the concept of asynchronous logic -- I know, I know, synchronous logic was good enough for my father and for his father before him, so it should be good enough for me ... but still, I love the concept.
