Yep. I'm on the same quest. Carrying everything I need to sessions is a lot
easier since I started buying books on PDF's. With Foxitreader make copies
of the tables and pictures I need so I can just print a few pages to pass
around. right now I'm playing around with Battleground Virtual tabletop.
already I can see Projector for my laptop in my future. Maybe next spring.
When I add up all the money I spent on Miniatures over the years the
investment doesn't seem to bad.
