RE: Chris' catalogue-Age and PC use

I hope this works well for you, Chris!  The younger folks (under 70 or so)
should appreciate it and have no trouble using it.  

Yesterday, Bill had to set up the church PC for a DVD presentation for one
of our very elderly members to give a talk.  I felt so badly for the man
because he had never used a PC and Bill was trying to explain not only how
to operate the PC, but how to use the overhead projection system connected
to it.   (It was so bad because the poor fellow didn't even know where to
turn on the CPU or where to stick the DVD, much less how to use a mouse and
forget blue-tooth technology!  We hate to see anyone's pride dashed.)  To
say the least, the man was confused and overwhelmed.  Fortunately another
(younger) man was there and was also going to be at the presentation, so he
volunteered to help do the "technical stuff" so the elderly member could
just concentrate on the talk.  There are still kind people in our world.

It should fit quite easily -- each version is only about 20MB.

Of course, I'm not going to distribute the Pocket PC version and stuff, but
that's another reason why I'm going with PDF:  the ubiquity of it all.
