And growing.   I just sent Al a CD with 450 MB of scans of
old obscure IBM manuals from the late 1960s and early 1970s.
One example:
225-3360-1 2030 Processing Unit Field Engineering Theory of Operation
(It describes all the internal operations of the S/360 Model 30.)

So far I have sent him 15 CDs of manual and print set scans,
many of which have not yet appeared online.   This is probably
because he lacks time and resources to do the necessary post
processing of them.

The next batch will be from SEL, GE, Tymshare, and a few other
miscellaneous companies.   After that, it will be all DEC.
If anyone else is scanning DEC manuals, please contact me so
we can coordinate our efforts and avoid duplication.
