Re: [nbos] Carrying less physical stuff to game

For this type of thing I use thumb drives. I have a 2 GB thumb drive with all of my Future Fantasy games (2300AD, Dark Conspiracies, MegaTraveller), another 2GB drive for all my Harnmaster publications and a 32GB thumb drive for all my own creations (I've been a busy boy). This also suppliments my failing eyesight due to age since I can blow up a pdf file to whatever size is necessary.
