Mazel Tov to Hebrewbooks.org on reaching the 50,000 plateau!50,000
truly thankful to them and the G'vir from Los Angeles who bankrolls the project. I have found it to be an invaluable resource, research tool and whenever I'm on the site I feel like a kid in a candy store.
Halevai we both should have as many hits as they have Seforim! :-)
They just added 44 volumes of the Torah Shelemah.After you smell your smelling salts and get up off the floor, you better download them fast as there's a chance that they will not stay there; The copyright situation may not be so poshut.
Wow. Thanks for sharing that, S. Sometimes I just can't believe how fortunate we are to live in this digital age. Years ago I needed to travel to the rare books rooms of libraries to access old Seforim. Now available with a click of a mouse.
I agree. It's a shame that it's also somewhat paralyzing - then again, that happens to me in libraries with browseable stacks too.I generally think in terms of not now, but in 10 or 20 years, what it will be like. I recently saw someone forecast that in 15 - 20 years on-demand printers that can spit out an entire book in a few seconds or a minute will be what normal printers are capable of. The more I thought about it, the more I realized that this is probably correct. Who ever dreamed we would see this, even what we see now? Incredible.
