Working in architecture like I do, I find that I need to reference the CBC often. In fact, I refer to it often enough that I decided to purchase my own copy.
One problem with owning your own copy is that you need to keep it up to date. unfortunately, it updates often. Luckily, there is a free subscription to get updates mailed to your home or business. Unfortunately, you may have forgotten to register for that service – like a couple of my colleagues. So for them and others like them I offer a couple a quick links to help you along.
