Working Paper

It is said that it is not wise to dabble in the Arts without care and caution, for the spell is at once subtle and dangerous: Look herein! For if you read carefully and closely, you can incant a Word of Magic, and the system might be revived. This working paper describes crash recovery procedures for a DEC KA-10 computer running ITS, the Incompatible Timesharing System. It is intended for people not intimately familiar with the system internals who need to handle emergency operation program when a system maintaner is not available.
