Every once in a while you actually find something cool at those places.
There is a 99 cent clearance store (same chain as the one you went to
Larry) near me where I found a bunch of mid 80s computer programming books
(all in a series). The titles were like '6502 Assembly Language
Programming' and 'Z-80 Assembly Language Programming', 'FORTH', some
others. I bought all of them at $.99 each (about 35 in all) kept a set
for myself and sold the rest on Usenet. I still have a few copies left if
anyone's interested.
