How did you survive prior to the internet making information easy to find?

I had a large bookshelf stuffed with data books, and the Philips rep on the other end of the phone.

Debugging code was by LED, 'scope, brain power.  And on one occasion printing out the code on fan-fold paper, spreading it out on the office floor and spending days crawling up and down tracing the code flow.  You had to fix your own bugs - no-one else could help you.

Prior to my professional career the only source of info was hobby magazines and the woefully inadequate "electronics" section of my local library.

Digging up this thread again...

I have a load of data books, from the 1980-2000 sort of era. These will eventually get binned, which seems a shame. Someone was going to take them and pay for shipping, but this didn't work out. So I am posting them here again. 3 photos here

It would be a shame.

There are a small number that might interest me. Where are you in the UK; that might remove the postage costs.

We did not know what we did not know, and therefore information search was not that difficult. Bigger problem was  parts availability. You could have data books, magazines and stuff but much of it was just an amazing paperweight because you could not get parts.

I am in the south east.

Ideally I'd like someone to take the whole lot.
