I got some good responses on twitter, thanks to all of you who responded. The one closest was this one from Dmitry Geurkov (@dgeurkov)

Following links from the last site, I found these other very promising links:

Indirectly I also found:

Finally, I found the timeline from the computer history museum.

I was pretty sad to see so many dead links.

Until the next time.
