    Something I did yesterday is history as well. Windows discs could easily be copied or procured if someone wanted them. Antique books not so much.

    Get a grip.

    Not to shit on your thread I don't understand the fetishism of some paper and ink that a lot of people seem to have. Loving the content, the story, the writing, the imagery...that I can understand. But being so into the actual physical medium itself just seems a bit odd to me.

    Books are books. They are there to be read. It's like buying a '59 Les Paul and putting it behind glass. The guitar exists to be played.

    But hey, what do I know* :o


    *Quite a bit actually. I'm very clever :o
