    Why did I ...

    Oh, why did I thow away all my Bicycling magazines along with all my Mountainbike Pro, Mountainbike and all other Brittish and American mags? Didnīt think I would miss them... and they took up a lot of space. Well itīs easy to be wise afterwords.

    Well you could always have done like I do if there's something I would like to save in a magazine but I don't want to keep old mag's around myself. So I scan the articles into the computer, and then when there's enough, I will burn them onto a CDROM. Which takes up alot less space, in the house.

    Sounds like you must of had quite a collection.Every now and then I miss an issue or two but magazines and newspapers sure can add up quick.I like the scanning idea but I don't even know how to operate it.We got the scanner for my oldest daughter and shes our computor 'expert'.She saves all our computor memory for pictures of boy bands and the Sims computor game.She deletes every thing to feed that game.Hope someday she will show me how to operate the scanner so I can put a picture of my Machine on BikeForums.Man, someday I'm gonna learn all this stuff

    Well the bike mags went the same way as my photo magazines, which I also regrets. Iīve learnd my lesson now, so the rest of my family have to stand all my magazines in the apartment in the future.

    When I was in college, there was a guy in the dorms who was absolutely addicted to nudy magazines.

    The really bad thing was that he couldn't or wouldn't throw any of them away.

    He had them literally stacked from floor to ceiling. Even his bed was raised from the floor by the skin mags stacked under his bed.

    He had an approximately 24" wide 'tunnel' from the door to his desk and to his bed. The rest of the room was just a cavern of porn.

    In these modern times, his room would have been deemed a fire hazard, but in those days he was just considered a kook that couldn't get a date to save himself.

    As our house became increasingly crowded, I began separating my magazines into three piles: RATI (read and toss immediately) pile, TAAR (train and airplane reading) pile, and RFY (retain five years) pile. Fortunately, several of my current technical and trade electronics magazines have very good websites, which solve the fire hazard and search issues simultaneously.
