Isn't 7044 bigger than 360

When I took the post doc assignment in IIT, Kanpur, the professor informed me that IIT,K had good computational facilities. They has an IBM 7044. I was only aware of IBM 360 and 7044 was a bigger number.

I was keen to return, in retrospect from a misplaced notion of patriotism. Nothing else mattered. However, I could not have imagined that I would be killing my career in Computational Physics.
