A source for full 9100 docs?
Message #1 Posted by Frank Glitz on 23 Mar 2002, 10:45 a.m.

Look at this URL: 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 Does anyone know another *public* source for 9100 docs?

The interview has been made seven years ago, a short time before Barney Oliver died.

Regards, Frank

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.

There are a lot of neat articles there like this one from what appears to be the last issue available online (Volume 3, Number 1, November 1995):


It looks like there hasn't been any activity on this site since 1997.
