    Almanac Heaven
    From: Robert Eno

    Hello List,
    I have been in retirement for quite a while and for one reason or another, neglected to activate the list after deactivating it several months ago.
    A question which I have been meaning to ask:
    What do you do with your old Nautical Almanacs?  Since the late 1980's, I have been regularly ordering the US government edition with its wonderful sewn binding and hardboard covers (I purchase the commercial version for my vessel's library). I have thus far hung on to every copy because I am loathe to throw them out. It would be like throwing out a hardbound edition of a good novel. 
    Is there any conceivable use for old Nautical Almanacs?  Will, say, the 1999 version ever be of use again through some cyclic mechanism in the universe (notwithstanding precession etc.)?
    Or am I just being an inveterate and sentimental packrat?
