@Max..." I initially thought you were talking about the Television Program "   Had a look - it is really funny and I'll look for some more.   However I doubt it would have caused Caleb to misinterpret Aubrey's gender :-)

Great job you have done. Hope to see your archive somewhere on this globe soon. For myself I have them in my hands each 5 years... Never threw them in the bin, but when I know there is an archive I might save myself some shelf space ;-)

@David: ...methinks Caleb has been listening to too much Bread...

Ah, "Bread" the group -- I initially thought you were talking about the Television Program (a really funny sitcom in the UK)

I wish I had found a project requiring an LM10.

There was a quote in Wireless World, 35 to 40 years ago - "datasheet's are marketing turning BS into silicon believing".

I did ask RIP if it was a Bob Widlar quote. Turns out not to be so.

Anyone enlighten?
As for old DS's, high bandwidth JFET's and Bipolar's are gone since the end of the 2048x1536 CRT's.

Dash.

Wood stoves are good for paper. Easy to weld as well.

@DarkMatter0.... "or getting solder splatter on good clothes (a particular favorite of my wife). "

I'm glad I'm not the only one who does this (or who has a wife like mine :-)

Could've been worse...he could have been called Sue, as in the Johnny Cash song.

We have at work a guy of Indian origin called Debraj.  Everyone just calls him Deb.  Causes no end of confusion....

You should check out the Internet Archive. They might accept your archive there or you can ask them on their forum about where it should go.

An alternative to hard drives

A good alternative is to use Dropbox or MajorTom to host your mass array of information. I use Dropbox to house 3D dummy drawings and videos for customers. This also allows you to control who has access.

Hi Aubrey

>"Y'all did notice the slide show of the cover art, I hope"

I did once you told us......

I knew you had done this (and I seem to remember you've helped me out with datasheets in the past) but I had not realised quite what a labor of love it was.

Some datasheet sites keep parts of whole databooks available and indexed as to what chips they refer to.  maybe one of them could post copies of your records (you seem to be pretty altruistic about making them freely available).  I just had a look at our own Datasheets.com - in the index on the home page there is space for a "Databooks" entry.   How about it UBM?   It would make your site the most comprehensive datasheet collection in the world!
