And while on the subject of Lapidary Journal CD's, I would
love to buy a CD of the tips and tricks of the year that were
published on Orchid.
Hans, interesting that you should mention that. I have collected the
Orchid tips (that I wanted to keep) by subject matter ever since I
began subscribing to Orchid. It’s easy enough to do for yourself. I
simply set up a folder for Jewelry with subfolders of Soldering,
Tumblers, Photography etc… Then when I read a tip that is of
interest to me, especially those with recommendations or either a
piece of equipment or a person, then I simply copy those messages
into the appropriate categories. Then when I need something, I
simply go back to my folders and look down the messages I’ve saved
and can usually find what I want easily and quickly. I have found
this very satisfactory for myself and easy enough to do.
Unfortunately when I first started doing it, I simply copied only the
info I wanted and didn’t copy the entire message, date, person
submitting etc., so I have no way to go back to check with that
particular person should I want more detailed info. But you could
easily set up your own system for doing this and that way you’d keep
only the info you personally wanted.
