    And the flight annex (even more annoyingly) has a pen and ink, and a
    PCN, and then the full doc.

    The *most* fun was the several PCNs where the front page of one PCN page and
    the back page *were not contiguous page numbers*!!! (i.e., "page 4-1" was
    on the front and "page 6-2" was on the back).

    It required you to take the original and the PCN to the copy machine and
    make your *OWN* two-sided copy of each of those updates... they got smart
    after a few of those and made sure the original (non-updated) page was on
    the opposite side of the *updated* page, so that the book actually remained
    a book. <g>

    Even if they're not mis-punched, they can be at a different height on
    the page, so the update pages stick out (high or low, even left or
    right).


    I've also gotten updates where the pages were consecutive, but
    "incorrect parity", i.e. instead of an odd page as the right hand page
    and an even page as the left hand page, it had, e.g. page 4-2 backed by
    page 4-3. Or you get a page 4-1.1, which you're supposed to put in
    between 4-1 and 4-2, which, of course, are the front and back of one
    sheet.

    Back in the era of Gemini, this may have made sense. But why *today*
    isn't there just a new update of the entire document? No need to even
    print it, just use the electronic form.

    And... different Flight Controllers had different organizational methods.
    Some used tabs in their Rules book to help them find the appropriate
    sections quickly... others had hand-written notes or highlighted sections...

    All of these are somewhat tough to do in a single on-line copy.
