  1. Ok, I'm fishing.

    I'm looking for an old databook I used to own: National Mass Storage
    Handbook (from 1988 or 1989).

    This book has a great description of disk drive operation and the associated
    signals.

    Unfortunately, I must have thrown it away. Now I'd like to re-learn some of
    that content.

    National simply reports that, indeed, the book is not published anymore!

    Any help appreciated! Please drop me an e-mail (just in case I don't catch
    the group reply)

  2. I have a copy, though it's from 1986. Won't sell it. (I don't think
    I've ever opened that book before.)
     
  3. By the way, I think this part of the book is AN-413, which you can
    find in .pdf form here :
