What about the availability of the checklist as a digital file? I for
one would much prefer it in this format rather than more paper to have
to store. Sounds like it would fit on either one or two floppy disks.
Floppy disks are available in bulk for only about 25 cents each(smaller
quantities for about 50 cents each). Cheaper to mail also. e-mailing as
an attached file is even cheaper! Possibly the file could be made
available through a web page for downloading too... just wondering...
