I stha t PDF available anywhere? I have a Dazzler but no manual.

If OCR is a pain (and I can well believe that) why not just retype it?
Even though it's a bit tedious, and would need careful checking, 3.3K
isn't too bad, and it's probably quicker than fixing a poor OCR. I
know; I was the person who re-typed the 60K of the original TREK73 from
some pretty awful photocopies, when no machine-readable version could
be found. I set it up on a copy stand beside my machine, and typed
half-hour or one-hour stints in the evenings when I had nothing much
better to do, for a couple of weeks. 3.3K wouldn't take long, even if
it is hex.
