    I have started keeping all my CAL's and licenses in PDF format though. They are written to a USB harddrive with ISO's of all our original software and stored in the firesafe with our backup tapes.

    I use a similar system, although I used 3-ring binders when the folders get too big and it isn't just the MS KB. The binders are broken down by subject: Win 2003 server, Win XP, Linux (General), BackTrack, Ubuntu, Mac OSX, etc.

    Another good place is Tech Republic. They have a wide subject and OS article base.

    Nothing beats being able to read something on actual paper.

    I thought you invented the Knowledge base idea? Isn't this one of your early works?

    I was thinking more along these lines.

    That's what virtual desktops are for!!

    Of course, if you really wanted to have some fun, go to Wal-Mart late at night and ask the greeter if they could help you find trashbags, roll of carpet, rope, quicklime, clorox and a shovel. See if they give you any strange looks. --Streaker69

    You can be sure they were the ones who wanted the GUI. Or as we used to say "You bet your asp!"

    Waaaaaay off topic, did you happen to catch Rome on HBO? That Cleopatra chick was hot! Though I'm pretty sure they didn't shave their legs and pits back then.
