Dear 'web-deprived AMI subscribers (who are probably reading this on old analog paper technology), I read that Jody is still having to apologise that you aren't able to read this digest 'online'.

If you need assistance, please don't hesitate to call me. There are many other subscribers to this list who would love to assist you, too!
