    Have any members tried to obtain one?
    
    Well, last time I got one was back in 2000 when my daughter asked me what I
    wanted for Christmas.
    This was say Nov 1999.  She ordered and paid for the almanac.  As I
    remember, I got it just in time for it
    to be obsolete somewhere in late 2000.  Will I order another?  I doubt it.
    
    A great example of a US Govt out scoured service.  Maybe the UK does better.
