Re: Lots of my PDFs online

The availability of papers in a digital format must be increasing
research efficiency by quite a large margin.  In the time it would
take for mail to arrive from over seas, you could have dozens of ILL
pdf's steraming your way through the 'tubes. There may not be as much
of a manual sensory association with pdfs ("computers have no smell"),
but information can spread much faster and is more freely available.

Also, when I was your age- the internet was uphill, both ways!
