sigh - High Priced Manuals...

Sure is getting a bit pricey!

But there are advantages to having an original rather than an on-line copy,
as I am sure you would agree. If not, we would all be running just emulators
for our classic hardware rather than having the actual machines with all of
the maintenance that implies.

As many of you know I am in the process of getting a PDP-8 / ASR-33 project
off the ground. I have been discussing the "value" of various items with
different people, and the one thing we can all agree on is "How much are you
willing to pay, or are you willing to keep looking?" is the only accurate

So I guess even "smart" people will bid on items that have content which is
available for free...Or would you disagree, and say only fools would?
