|A source for full 9100 docs?|

Look at this URL: http://www.chac.org/engine-ascii/engv2n3.txt. It is a quite interesting interview with Barney Oliver, who is well known for his engagement at SETI and HP. Most interesting is the
following text passage:
... Oliver: Yeah, I think that's right. I know there were six planes. I'm not sure of the details.
KC: _Don't worry, we have full docs on the 9100. Which, of course, are several times the size of the machine itself._
Oliver:(laughs) Very good! There were something like 2200 bits -- yeah, 2208 bits of core memory. About 32,000 bits of ROM. ...
What does "KC" mean with "full docs"? Does anyone know the guys behind chac.org? Does anyone know another *public* source for 9100 docs?
The interview has been made seven years ago, a short time before Barney Oliver died.
P.S.: If the above URL is not working, I've copied the full text. Just drop me a line and I'll send it by mail.
