In case you hadn't noticed, the digital age is here. And by all appearances, it's here to stay.

While many of you might not have made the jump to computers and the Internet - yet - most likely, more of you now own a computer than don't.

In as much as some folks decry the age of the computer, the truth is it's just another tool, and how it impacts our lives depends on how we use it. And computers have touched just about every corner of our world, including the old-iron hobby.

Personally, I think computers and the Internet are great, as they give us yet another avenue for collecting and sharing information within the hobby. Ask anyone who's Internet savvy, and they'll tell you there's a wealth of information out there just waiting to be discovered.

Hobbyists around the world have created personal Web pages dedicated to their particular engine interests, complete with engine registries and serial number lists. They post pictures of their engines, both restored and original, and sometimes they take us through their restoration experiences. A lot of this information has never made it into print, and the people who take the time to post on the Web the results of their personal research experience are doing the rest of us a great service.
