There are now three new ways to order a digital copy of all the files in the Collection.
There is a base cost of the Collection, the cost of the medium (if ordered on a Flash Drive or SD Card), and the cost of shipping, handling and packaging materials (if ordered on a Flash Drive or SD Card). With that, here are the costs of the Collection.
1. Zip Digital Delivary via Dropbox: $25.00 base + $0.00 medium + $0.00 shipping = $25.00. (+ sales tax if applicable)
Requirements: your e-mail address and subscription of your own to Dropbox (if necessary, create an account there.)
2. USB Flash Drive: $25.00 base + $10.00 medium + $5.00 shipping = $40.00. (+ sales tax if applicable)
Requirements: your physical shipping address and a USB port on your computer.
3. SD Card $25.00 base + $12.00 medium + $5.00 shipping = $42.00. (+ sales tax if applicable)
Requirements: your physical shipping address and a SD Card slot on your computer.
In this day of age, fewer people own computers with built-in CDs and DVD players. Due to this and declining sales, the DFS Today in History CD is in the process of being replaced with a zipped-file download delivered via Dropbox, a method of transferring large files from one person to another.
I can also purchase a USB Flash drive to put the Today in History CD on, but this adds $10 to the cost of raw materials instead of $1 as with a CD-R or DVD-R. A good SD card can be bought for about $12. I won't go for the cheap no-name brands that you can get for a buck or two as they can not only be rejects, they may just die on you. Just the reputable brands such as Kingston and such will be considered. By request, I can purchase a higher capacity USB Drive and USB specification (2.0, 3.0, 3.1, etc.) and bill you $30 + the cost, which varies, of the medium used (plus applicable tax), so you can use it for storage of your other files and backup.
The DFS Today in History Collection takes up about 450 MB, or less than 0.5 a gigabyte. Many USB flash drives have up to 256 gigabytes and even beyond that as the years go on.
