Default RotW Supplement Index

Comrades,

As the title says, the document attached is a quick, one-page index I made for Peter Alway's Rockets of the World Supplements. I went to Kinko's and had them bind all of them (6) into one binding comb; cost about $3.00 including adding tabs to the individual year. I inserted this page inside the clear front cover. Now I no longer need to flip through them looking for a specific rocket and getting distracted.

I admit it's a little OCD, but I figured on this board, I'm probably not the only one.


Heck, I'm OCD and ADD, so everything has to be perfect, but not for very long.

I suffer from CDO; that's OCD, but with the letters in the right order.

Actually, I'm now tempted to do the same thing. I *think* I have two copies each of the supplements, and having one set under one cover like that sounds really handy, especially when I get to the point of trying to integrate them into a 5th edition.

Thanks Peter, I hope you don't mind me making that list.

I can't help but think with addition of all the Falcons, Long Marches, Delta IV, Atlas V, Antares, Angara, Vega and little Cohete 1 from Mexico, plus all the other "new "rockets since the Third Edition, the Fifth Edition is going to be a two volume set.

I can't wait . . . .

I was hoping for a scroll format, like the old Shire Horse Society Studbooks... (No, not really. :-) ) Also, I posted a link to your "All RotW Supplements Index"--with acknowledgement to you, and with book vendor contact information--on the Australian Rocketry Forum (see: http://www.ausrocketry.com/forum/vi....php?f=1&t=4840 ), because their members want copies of Peter's books, but were put off ordering by incorrectly-quoted (by online postage calculators) sky-high postage rates to Australia. That problem has, fortunately, now been resolved (this was a case of caveat vendor rather than caveat emptor). :-)

No objections whatsoever. I only wish there were one with the rockets in alphabetical order for all my books and supplements...

If things go the way I'd like, I'll just say that books can be thicker than one inch.
