Re: March BNL
No, apparently I don't know enough to add more tempest...
I am on of those heavily online types who buys book in CDrom form and reads
the entire book on screen and I do a lot of research reading online as
well, but I still feel the paper version (which I didn't get at all this
month in IN if anyone's keeping track) is very important for (personal)
archival purposes. As technology standards change oh so quickly, unless
you are able to keep converting things to the newest form you will run into
the problem of backwards compatibility. I recentl lost my hard drive and
with it apparently all the old software I had that could read some of my
old data files. I've had to pitch those and am left only *with the
original paper form*. You could send out pdf's but in 10 years time you
may wish you had a printed copy. Just my $0.02.
