Note from JWR:

For those that have asked: Yes, the SurvivalBlog archives on CD-ROM are indeed fully searchable in both the HTML and PDF versions. (Both formats are included on the CD-ROM.) And Yes, the archives also can be sorted by categories, in HTML. (So for example, you can see just the articles on Earthquakes, or just the articles on Gardening.) The CD-ROM is optimized for modern laptops, but could conceivably be used on other devices if they have the requisite processing horsepower. It is now orderable through, for $19.95. Even without an Internet connection you will have all of SurvivalBlog’s archives at your fingertips. And if you are online while using the CD-ROM, then the links to external web sites are fully functional.
