I would like a copy of your electronic Data Book Archive. I have 22m (72ft) of data books dating to 1974. I would like to recycle them in favor of an electronic copy! Is there a Torrent?

 It must have taken about 9 months, but when I think back it seems much shorter

It's amazing how warped my concept of the time has become. I looked at the readme I created on the archive. It apparently took me 20months.

"What can I say, I live in the past."

So do I, but not musically, which is why I gave up on commercial radio. Noncommercial radio still has some hope adn then there's online radio.

In the first comment of this article (December 10), I mentioned Home-Made Digital Clock Keeps on Ticking. Well someone just e-mailed me to say that he built two clocks with the MM531x series clock chips and he still has the data book. He wrote:

"I have the 1977 National Semiconductor MOS/LSI databook on the shelf behind me, the MM5316 data runs from page 1-9 thru page 1-13. Paper is somewhat yellowed with age."

I thought about buying one of those turntables to digitize my vinyl recordings, then realized that the unit would outlive its usefulness and besides, I really didn;t want ot listen to the music anyway.

What do you do with the turntable once you've digitized all your vinyl recordings? It kind of has a limitee usefulness after that.

Indeed. It is sitting on a bookshelf. I offered it to other members of my family who also have extensive LP collections, but none were as enthusiastic about the idea. Still it wasn't that expensive (less than $200) and I went into the project with the knowledge that its usefulness was limited.

I use Audacity on my XP dn Win7 computers. The Win7 version stopped recording from the microphone input. No idea why. I switched to plugging my phone into a batter-operated voice recorder, then transfer the mp3 output to my PC. It's great for recording interviews.

The older version of Audacity on my XP laptop works perfectly. I often use it to record streaming audio.

Quite possibly it was the excellent Audacity audio editor.



It definitely was Audacity. Thanks.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
