Just got back last night from family visiting so it's not that I've been ignoring comments - just away.

Really pleased that it's got to you Fermi - and that you liked it so much - it only seems to take about a week longer to get to Australia than the UK which is quite encouraging. And I hope that the next one will get from dispatch to members rather quicker since Christmas won't be a factor.

I quite agree Cliff about posting some pages etc from the Quarterly but I've been waiting for members to get their copies first - I wanted people to see it first when it arrived through their letter boxes rather than on the website. Hope to get some of that posting done this week. As far as downloadable back issues NARGS is looking to digitize past issues and that's a whole different job. But some pdfs of this last issue will be appearing. And then after each issue I'll post some elements once it has reached members.

Many thanks Malcolm.  My comments weren't in any way a criticism, more a stimulus to promote these wonderful journals.

Just to let people know that I haven't forgotten that I said I'd put up some parts of the Quarterly on the website for those who aren't members. Took a little while to get permission from AdCom and now I'm knee-deep in the spring issue but I will get to it - promise.

Haven't managed to get parts of the winter issue posted on the site yet (but new webmaster Chris and I have started discussing it). But if I haven't managed that I have just managed to get the proofs finalized with Allen Press - so the spring issue should be dispatched on or before March 25th if no unexpected problems crop up.

Allen Press have now dispatched copies of the Spring issue of the Quarterly so it is even now winging or crawling its way across North America and the rest of the world. I reckon it looks pretty good and the only mistake I've noticed is an error in my own email address which is correct in my profile here and was correct in the previous issue. Had to revise the page (back of Contents page) to meet up with USPS regulations and have obviously managed to create the error then.

Anyway - it's in the post!

Rather staggered to hear that Len Lehman in Pennsylvania had his copy at the end of last week (less than a week from dispatch in Kansas). Maybe post is quicker this time since we're not up against Christmas this time.

Panayoti mentioned to me that he got his yesterday; haven't seen my copy yet but I patiently await its arrival.

Mark

As a contributor you have some extra copies coming your way from Bobby Ward as well as your own member's copy. Interesting to know which arrive first.
