 WAITING LIST: We encourage people who want to participate to add your name, even after we reach the 20 mark. Experience shows that the line-up is "in flux" at the beginning.

The book page format will be the same as for the Asemic collaborations (1-3) - 2 sheets folded A4 - ie 8 sides. You will need to make 20 copies and post to each person on the list - the addresses will be added to this discussion once we have got confirmation from all the participants. Again - these collaborations only work if everyone commits and endures!

"You can check out any time you want, but you can never leave."

Yes, Angie & Snooker! Welcome aboard. I feel a lot better now.

Wind is up - back in a mo :-) X

AND Janine Weiss-Vuille (Switzerland). It's first-come-first-served. My experience with this is: You can sign up and drop out. But trying to get back in creates serious logistical problems.

OK, mandatory Union coffee break called in South Africa. And we don't want to spam the IUOMA board. If you want to participate, email or add your name. We'll run the numbers later. Thanks everyone!

sounds cool!

I'd love to take part. cheers
