So,

Did anyone try DTV4PC?  I found  this place linked below.  I tried it...was a little slow. On the plus side, it was free.

Does anyone know if George Vandeman's books are still in print?  I gave a bunch of books from the 60's away and I am regretting that decision now.

Most of them are available used. Try

Just write "George Vandeman" and it will find all of his books listed for sale - most of them used.

Our publishing houses no longer stock books, except for the Bible commentary and a few other items. Storage is expensive. I think everything they print is immediately shipped out to the ABCenters to be sold, and when a book has a few years on its back it is cleared to make room for new books at the ABC. It is very expensive keeping books in stock. Funds tied up preventing the possibility of printing new books, etc.

In the past it did not pay to print a small number of books. Now the books are stored on a hard disk with pictures, binding, and everything. The computer starts the machinery and out comes the number of books you want ready bound - perhaps even packed for shipping? Hardly anything can be compared with the printing presses at Battle Creek in the early days of Adventism. Neither is the same now as in the early days of color printing where the sheets had to pass the press for each color. Then quite a bit depended on the accuracy of the men running the machines. It was a real skill and good operators were rare.

Times have changed - in these last days.

I checked out the link and discovered that it isn't completely free, as you will find out for yourself in step #2 of the download process.

That is correct. As I pointed out there is a $49.95 price for the DTV4PC program. It is a one time purchase price. It is not free.
