I probably haven't done much paperchasing since 2001/2005. Worked the European SFT/Gold City net this morning and heard a few old friends in Germany, France, Netherlands and Russia that I haven't heard in years. Knew I was going to get lists via email and figured with Convention coming up next year, it was time to start the upgrade process.
What I noticed right away was that lots of chapters aren't here. Seems that some of the ones that are no longer have online upgrade forms. . Guess the others are either email or snail mail upgrades. Seems like there used to be more nline forms.
The good news is that most of my chapter info that was stored on floppies was recoverable with the old of a very old Dell laptop which had a working floppy drive. Then came the bad news - lost all the Portland 500 data ! If there are any more floppies around they are probably lost somewhere.
So, if anyone works me, I'll have a few upgrades and a new chapter or two.
