This sounds like a great way to get your hands on all those out-of-print adventures & sourcebooks. It may not be as good as a CD-ROM with a searchable index, but I'd be really happy if I ever heard that FASA had jumped on this bandwagon.

I was just in my local comic book store and saw that Hero Games is selling a whole bunch of their OOP books on disk. I don't know what the format was, I just had a few seconds. But they had "The Ultimate Martial Artist" and "Super mages" among others, each for $14.95 US.
Interesting concept that I would like to see FASA pursue.
