Time for another installment of  Contesting on a Budget!  Thanks in advance 
for your inputs, look forwarding  to hearing from you. 
Topic for the Mar-Apr NCJ:  Information Management.   Contesting is becoming 
an exercise  in information management, including creating, transporting, 
analyzing and  archiving information.  What  cost-effective means have you 
developed for dealing with the plethora of  accumulated information that a typical 
contester maintains?   How do you deal with the DOS to  Windows divide?  What 
convenient and  economical storage media do you use?  Look forward to your 
Personal anecdote:  3.5  floppies are not a viable long-term storage media.  
I tried transferring  some files that were about three years old, and my 
laptop FDD would not read  them.  It took several tries with several different 
computers to finally  read all the files.  I have them stored on a hard drive now.
