Yes, we intended to get a list of molecules with atomic weights above 102
before we went into the move to Sunnyvale, but we had to go with the
numbering way too soon. I suppose there are enough compounds and stuff out
there with enough different weights that we could have some up with a way to
go on for as many addresses as we would have liked.
I remember one executive saying, "I want cocaine, give me cocaine."
We also wanted to have xdm login screens and screensavers of each element and
all that cool stuff. Never happened, owell.
