Me too... I have no interest in becoming a 'stamp collector' and going
over-the-moon because I've got an EPROM in a purple ceramic package or
whatever. I do accumulate any old chips that are no longer available that
I can find. A frienf gave ne a large carrier bag of obscure TTL, for
example -- things like the BCD-Binary conversion ROMs, ALUs, etc.
I use said chips for repairs, homebrewing, etc.
