At one time, we had a printed and mailed catalog to cover the
sort of hardware stuff we now offer in our eBay Auctions or in
our eBay Stores. Or our Amazon Book Access Pages. Plus our
research and development services found in our InfoPacks, the
Magic Sinewave Development or via our email direct contact.

These days, direct mail catalogs are wildly cost ineffective and
instantly go out of date. So we no longer offer them. But here is
our older Synergetics Catalog.

This remains a useful demo of our BodCat Duplex Catalog software,
still has some still useful tips and techniques on its inside covers,
and provides a historic record of where we were.

Items and pricing in this catalog are no longer valid!

    Synergetics Direct Mail Catalog  SYNCAT01.PDF 
   A summary of Don's books, software, hardware, consulting, seminar,
      and devleopment services
. Includes extensive free Hardware Insider
Secrets and PostScript Insider Secrets. No longer current!

At one time, we also had an extensive need for online catalogs for
our direct mail operations. Our eBay sales and auctions have largely
displaced this need. Here is some info and demos on our "Gally Slave"
gallery product exhibits from that era...

Once long ago and far away, it was often enormously difficult to find
sources and suppliers of obscure items or services. So we put a bunch
of time and effort into maintaining a huge Master Names & Numbers
of nearly every item we covered in the Blatant Opportunist,
Hardware Hacker, Tech Musings, or Ask the Guru columns.

I've kept the list here for historic purposes, but we no longer maintain
it and many of the entries are probably wildly out of date...
