Once more on the merry-go-round

It must be spring: T.Aldous has asked me for a print-out of all the copies of Encyclopedia Britannica in our libraries and their age. This will turn into "I don't know why we've got all these old encyclopedias in stock," followed by "we shouldn't have the 1991 edition on the shelves at Dutch Bend," and ultimately "we must do something about getting rid of all these old encyclopedias and ordering some new ones."

I have a lot of sympathy with this point of view. But rather less than I had ten years ago when we first started this dance.
