YES!!  Index or no, access to back issues would be wonderful.  So an extra
annual fee, no sweat.

Ditto!  I'm starved for information and keep intending to join this and
send for that.  But the truth is my current priorities are basic life
support: food, rent, plant material...computer repair :-(  and a simpler
and single access to worldwide news for everybody would be a great boon.
That's what the digital revolution was intended to provide.  (As for
Geraniaceae Group's antiquated method of collecting overseas dues I'm
obviously not the only one discouraged by it.)

When I get an original idea of my own you'll be the first to know.
