Re: new format for books

I had plenty of time early in the day yesterday and noticed little traffic,
but then I got pretty busy and just now had time to check the list.

I use my software references differently than I do my books.  I use software
for easy transfer of the information - text and pics.  But if it's for my
own knowledge, I prefer books.  However, you're right - space is a
consideration.  I have 2 huge binders of CES publications from my MG course.
I rarely refer to them, but need to keep them on hand.  Well, our Hort Ed
just had almost all the pubs put on a CD in pdf.  Just may get rid of those
3 ring binders.
