But more important: the key to Bill's frequent successful finds is his
persistence. Sure, we all post on classiccmp, but that represents mostly
insiders. There are scores of accumulators/collectors who never heard of
classiccmp, and when they Google for vintage computer sites, they go to the
first places they find. Or at least that's my vaguely substantiated

At present I have the original user manual for the 8800b, including a promo
poster (I forget who is on it though). I also have a lot of 8800bt stuff,
maybe a the Altair disk drive manual too. I don't believe I have anything
that is not found in many other places. I'll send a complete inventory of
all my Altair docs including the new stuff to the group asap, and post on
our club inventory site. I have to poke around a little.
To answer your other question....I am a frequent poster to
vintage-computer.com/vcforums/ (Eric Kline's board), and I also post from
time to time on the Altair Yahoo group, the CBM hackers (cbm-hackers),
comp.sys.cbm, alt.folklore.computers, comp.sys.tandy, comp.sys.apple,
old-computers.com, I have a little blog of my own on vintagecomputer.net,
and so on. Depends what project I am working on at the time.
