Wow, you mean everyone doesn't own an OED?  Next you'll tell me
that you don't have a Facsimile Folio of Shakespeare!

On a serious note - the OED on CD-ROM is way more expensive than just
buying the damn thing on paper.  We've found some used OED's for under
$100 American.  Not much under, sure, but under.
