After you're done reading a book, you put it down, and maybe never even read it again. After you read 100 resumes, and pick a couple to talk to the people you have to hire someone. That someone will be in your life for the forseable future. It makes the consequence of picking a bad or--even worse--a mediocre candidate a serious decision. Its much worse to hire a mediocre employee because it will take you longer to figure out they are no good, and even longer to get rid of them.

They already did this:

They even sent me a free tablet on the hopes I'd build an app for them.

It was a pretty sweet deal I have to admit.

I ended up pirating the entire catalog of D&D products because I couldn't find the AD&D 2nd Edition books for sale in either print or PDF form. So at least in my case, not printing them in the first place lead to piracy. Hopefully more companies get with the program.

Actually there is a plethora of old D&D stuff on ebay, mostly going for prices less than original retail. I've been amassing a pretty large collection of everything I can find from the very beginning through 2e. So far I have about 130 individual rulebooks/modules/sourcebooks/etc, and about 150 issues of Dragon. The nostalgia is so sweet.

Any program which runs right is obsolete.
