That site was built by Ray Holt who was featured at VCF 2.0 where he first
revealed this information. I've gotten a lot of great stuff from him,
including photos of the chip masks, photos of the prototype computer, and
other interesting things. Ray's got the original first fab prototype
chips. It would be great--nay, it is imperative--to get an actual
instance of the computer for preservation.

It was Navy. But perhaps your contact might be useful nonetheless?
Please e-mail me privately.
