Re: Armitage CD and other electronic wonders


How about quadruplets?  I have a feeling we're going to end up with the
largest passel of kids ever born.  I love my books too!  One of my fondest
memoroes of college was wandering back in the stacks in the library - there
were some books from the 1600's that were not relegated to the special book
room, and what an awesome (in the old sense of the word) experience it is to
have one in your hands and read through it.  The internet, while an
incredible tool, has no sense of history/permanence for me.

I admit a CD is much easier to carry though.
