It is coming close to time for me to renew my US Chess Federation membership. I usually do it for 3 years at a time which saves a few dollars. Thirty five years ago I could have gotten a life membership for next to nothing in today's dollars, but now it seems a little late for that.
I find myself missing the magazine. I can read the magazine online, but I never bother. Part of me is thinking that if I spend the extra bucks to get the magazine that I will actually take the time to read it.
This is odd considering that everybody else in the world is moving toward e-readers.
