The World Wide Web, CD-ROMs, and FreeBsd are all younger than 1970.
I'm bad at recalling exact dates, but 1970 sounds as if it were in the
early Usenet area (the dial-up network used to distribute mail and
news). If that is indeed the case, it's probably a good idea to take a
look a the archives of the comp.sources newsgroups - such archives do
exist though I don't know where.

Search the comp.compilers archives again.
