Hi Al,

Thank goodness you have the datatrieve user's guide complete. Turns out
my binder is incomplete, half missing, so I'll abandon that one.

As I wrote earlier this month, my others in the scanning queue,
apparently complete, are:

* Reference Manual, AA-K079E-TE
* Guide to Writing Reports, AA-P862C-TE
* Handbook, AA-W675B-TE

By the way, what's your position on scanning two-colour printed manuals
like the DTR ones? Not worth keeping the colour for Bitsavers?
