Over a few decades I collected a nice set of databooks from various
manufacturers. At a certain moment I didn't need them anymore. So I
went for a used book store. But the guy behind the counter was clear:
all the people that are interested in that kind of books, already got
them! So I had to dump them in the old paper bin.
There are zillions of boards of which the specs are free of charge
available... For example:
Look at Documents, Hardware. Why would I spend hal;f the price of a
tested working board on schematics for an idea?
Those days are over. I wish it was not the case. But it still is. Sad as
it may be for us, techies.
Met vriendelijke groeten,
