I guess the medal process takes a bit of time over there! Or did they read the code first?

I thought that the paper WAS the program... I though they used punched tape back in the 60's.... Assembly language for the system/3 surely wouldn't be that long... It only had 1k...
Ian, the code is only 1K, its a woman!! So 1K code and the rest is comments!! I expect there is shopping lists and all sorts in it :D.

Nah, it would do upgrades just before landing. I saw a you tube clip of the weather forecast and when the switched to the computer showing the "weather", Windows was doing an upgrade.

A thought for the stack of code, primary code for system ops, core aspect, then for the possible emergency contingencies, to be functioned from ground control with craft operators in the event of possible problems.

possible emergency contingencies
Like getting lost? And i bet 3/4 of it is based on landing, seeing as that is done in reverse ;).
