Can you just deliver online?

If not, I like spiral better than 3-ring. Why? It looks more
professional and, more importantly, it takes up less space when opened
up and being used. What I don't like about spiral is the lack of text
and info on the spine, but I'd live with that rather than have 3-ring.

Updates? You mean, ship 3-hole punch paper, assume those sheets make
it to the guy with the binder, and assume the guy with the binder puts
them in? Never happen.

We use perfect binding and hard covers, we make software, and we are
weird that way.

What is it you doc, anyway?
