And now thanks to fellow time-nut Louie Mamakos there is a copy that is search
able.  Here is how he did it:

"Just for grins, I ran your PDF file through Adobe Acrobat to OCR it (and
clean it up slightly).  The image is still there, but the OCR'd text is there
"underneath" and can be searched for, selected, etc.

The OCR in Acrobat is pretty smart, in that it has a "clean-up scanned image"
step it runs along the way that's pretty effective.  Of course, the UI
is just horrible, but I just try to ignore that bit..  It came with my
Fujitsu ScanSnap S1500M scanner and it seems to get the job done."

The search able copy from Louie is at the same place:

Look for the one that has OCR in the title.
