Hey, Web 3 is on disk. Looks like it has been for a couple of years, but I didn't realize it till just now. Having Web 11 on my computer has been a terrific timesaver. I expect Web 3 will be both more so and less so: I have less frequent occasion to consult Web 3, but when I do, it's always a grumpy-groany "oh, man, I have to get up and schlepp across the room and manhandle that monster book." For twenty years I've growled a little growl when I had to resort to the dictionary of second reference. Now it'll be just a keyboard shortcut away. There's a hundredth of a calorie I won't be burning anymore. Plus, portability rocks. I remember the days when I had to carry a backpack of reference works with me if I had to bring work to a convention, and just going outside to work in the garden became a mini-emigration.

Chicago is supposedly due out on disk, but not until later this year. In the meantime, it's still searchable here, if you've got the book itself close to hand.
