Dear Prof Thompson & colleagues:

I still much prefer to use (esp. for excerpts that I can easily cue in advance) the good old VHS format.   
And I have my own extensive VHS collection that's very handy to get at. 

Does anything prevent you for doing that same thing? 

Yours truly,
Steven P Hill,
University of Illinois.
