Remember its first name: Damp Proof Course.

The first phases of development were strictly secret....

Not so long ago Tutus was honoured to ask Nick Toop some questions.

On his answer he narrates how painfully was his exit from Enterprise Computers LTD:

".....when I was constructively forced out of the company was one of the saddest periods of my life and I do not like to think about it.  I was also obliged to erase all personal copies of the design which is sad as I had various enhancements in mind and would love to be able to implement my design with these enhancements in a modern CPLD...."

This mean to me that all people involved on the project had such obligatory clause in their contracts.
