Hi Donald,

Printing these out when the printout will not truly capture all the
embedded detail within the digital document, and storing an
ever-growing number of file cabinets of paper against the day where we
did not properly preserve the electronic copies now that the community
knows how to do this seems a waste of resources to me.

It made sense in the early days of the Series.  I don't believe it
makes sense any longer.
