Expander Performance Manual

This is a fairly obscure piece of documentation that, for me (Chris [21030691]) at least, came to light only a dozen years after the site began. Many thanks to Eric W. Mattei [16330105+] who brought the manual to my attention, transcribed his copy, and helped put this section together.
