Yeah, as if no one had ever thought of sending printed copies just to 
*them* instead of everyone.

I've been on a paper-reduction campaign for some time. I recently got 
rid of a whole bunch of AMSAT Journals, QSTs and QEXs and replaced them 
with CD-ROMs. It cost more than it should have, but it's still cheaper 
than extra shelving -- or a bigger house.
