4,000 Pages of IBM PC Documentation


Over at Gearfuse, Vince Veneziani — the shrieking monkey id of gadget blogging — took advantage of an all-too-rare moment of sanguinity to post this striking shot of the gorgeous manual set that IBM shipped with the original PC back in 1984. This complete set of documentation is still sitting on the shelves of my parent's house under a cake of twenty year old dust as thick, silvery and undappled as the surface of the moon. They just don't make documentation like this anymore.
