Same thing happened to me.  I was really annoyed by their refusal to allow
the purchase of any of the digital library for offline use because I have
such crappy internet service here.  Just wanted to have access to stuff that
I had already purchased so that I could get rid of the paper copies.  The
final straw was when being a SIGGRAPH member stopped including the proceedings.

Last of my old CACM and proceedings of the IEEE went out recycling today.

BTW, as part of my dodsstada project I have found extra copies of the
1992, 1993, 1997, 2000, 2001, 2002, and 2003 SIGGRAPH proceedings if
anybody wants 'em.
