What happened to the DVDs?

For quite a few years now, we've been providing our videos on a set of DVDs. However, much as floppy drives disappeared a decade ago, fewer and fewer computers have easy access to a DVD drive these days. We have therefore decided to switch our production to SD flash memory cards and USB thumb drives. They are a little more expensive than DVD blanks, but they are much more reliable and easy to ship. What's more, you now get a useful 32 GB drive out of the deal.

What do I get?

We provide all of our materials (full listing) on a 32 GB SDHC flash memory card or USB thumb drive. This is stuffed full of hundreds of hours of lecture videos, colloquia, problem sets, exams, notes and solutions. Every course-related bit of information you can find on this site is there, and you don't have to download any of it.

How much does it cost?

$70 buys the SDHC card and free shipping anywhere in the world (though we'd be thrilled if you could donate more). We also offer a USB drive, because not everyone has a flash memory reader but USB is everywhere. Shipping and handling is more difficult, so this option costs $75. Isn't it strange that, even now, it's still cheaper and faster for us to ship you a physical widget through the mail than for you to download the information over the net? Never underestimate the bandwidth of the US Postal Service...

What can I do with it?

Nearly all of our content is released under the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike license. This means that you are free to do almost anything you like with it -- copy it yourself, distribute it, even change it (see the FAQ for the details). (Note: the colloquia we include are the speakers' personal opinions, and as such they are licensed under the slightly different Attribution-NoDerivs rules. Share them as much as you like, but no modifications allowed.) Our hope is to make this information as widely available as possible. Share it with your friends and colleagues, make copies to pass around campus, put it up online yourself.

How do I order?

We'll accept any kind of US-dollar-denominated currency instrument, such as a bank draft, money order, or personal check. You can also pay via credit card through PayPal, though in that case it costs $3 extra to cover PayPal's fees. Please include a shipping address. To repeat, please include a shipping address. Type it into the space that is provided for comments. Paypal won't provide it for us automatically. If you have any other questions or special requests, just drop us a line at (drives@aduni.org).
