But you have never seen it from me.

On the contrary, I have made all the same points you've made about why star-ship computers should be big. I noted that in the first post.

It's the combination of sizes, the way programs work in CT, and the apparent slowness of searches in the library that suggests an alternative take on computers and information technology, to me.

2-3 hours to look up one element of a planet's UWP seems pretty slow.
