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,
