    Yes, I am a member and it is worth it to me for many of the reasons already expressed.

    Are all the back issues of CPN online? That's what I wanted to join for, to get all the old mags but joining then buying "1000 back issues" (I know it's not really that many) was a huge amount and prevented me from doing so. Is it free to read all the online old issues for members? How about the new issues are they published online too or are they still printed and shipped?

    Yes you can access the older issues.

    A year or 2 ago they sent out a CD / DVD with all the old issues on it for you to have a hard copy.

    I think I saw an area once on the site that had them all in a zip download for people who did not get the CD / DVD instead of individually downloading them? (There probably is a program somewhere, I know in the past I've used them, that can download all the links on a given page.)

    Yes, all the back issues are online in PDF format for members.

    You can buy a CD of back issues (up to Dec 2006) online member or not. The CD is mailed to new members. Members in 2007 were also mailed the CD. Non-member price is $25 US

    Nifty - I may join then just for that! What about newer issues are they PDF that you get a link to download or do they mail a paper copy?

    I wish there was an easy way (sans scanning them page by page) to put all my books on PDF so I could sell them and still have em.

    They still mail paper newletters but every issue is available online as a PDF. The PDFs are often available for members before the issue is mailed out.
