A hidden pearl

I wonder how many of you have ever faced the situation of being without Intex, Trepp or Bberg and need to look up some bond, or a loan in a deal just to know what deal it's in, what its balance is and so on. is free, and it's easy to use.  Where it says "find bonds", you can put in a deal using Bberg nomenclature or even a subset of the deal name.  So putting in "2008-c2" will find that most wonderful deal, JPMCC 2008-C2. 

You can see the capital structure and the underlying loans.  OK, you cannot run yields, but it sure costs a lot less than Trepp!
