    Of course that's assuming you have space to file them...
    We had a Staples for a couple of years. I went in to get some stuff military stuff printed off and the wench behind the counter was a real (not friendly). I told them to piss off and went two miles down the road and had a locally owned printing place do it. It cost more but was worth it for the service.

    It's nice to know there are a few others who share my feelings.
    All my medical how to's, repair how to's, build it how to's, ham radio information,
    topographic maps, and other how to's are on six 8 gig micro SD cards.
    Figure an average of 35,000 pages (combo of image files and Word files) per
    gig that means I have about 1.6 million pages of info. At an average weight
    of 10 pounds per 1,000 sheets of standard printer paper, that comes to 16,000
    pounds of paper that is now reduced to 1.3 pounds not including the solar charger
    for the tablet. Even if I were at my best and had none of my present health issues
    it would probably kill me to just load the truck with all the documents, leaving little
    or no space for water, food, or ammo. However it should be known that 16,000
    pounds of paper could probably take the place of a lot of sand bags around the perimeter.
    But they'd be flammable, so I'll stay with the digital storage.

    All my computer info/data files are also stored on thumb drives, and hang on tea-cup hooks screwed into the board on the inside of the door of my safe.
