One of my "Secret Squirrel" contributors mentioned that because the price of 128 MB and 256 MB USB memory sticks (aka "jump drives" or "USB thumb drives") has dropped to less than $2 each, readers that want to contribute any articles or lengthy letters to SurvivalBlog can now do so more anonymously, by simply snail mailing them in MS-Word format or RTF loaded on a "stick". Just tape them onto folded a piece of stiff cardboard and use a standard size envelope. This way there will be no e-mail trail. It will also save me many hours of laboriously keying-in hard copy articles, and eliminate the risk of transcription errors. My only special request is that because of software compatibility issues, please be sure to send multiple copies of the files on the stick in various formats, including plain text ("TXT"), Rich Text Format (".RTF"), and Microsoft Word (".MSW"). Once I've copied and then deleted the files, I will pass those sticks along to soldiers deployed in Afghanistan and Iraq. (I'll pack them in my regular Any Soldier program gift boxes.) Our current mail forwarding address is: Jim Rawles, P.O. Box 303, Moyie Springs, Idaho 83845. Thanks!
