While I appreciate the thanks, remember that most of the work is done
by other volunteers that work on the Checklist and R&I data, checking,
correcting and separating it into the proper tabbed fields,
I just do the organization, account management and system updates.
As a status report, all the sections of the 2000 R&I are out for
editing, most are back and we will start on the 2001 shortly.
Many thanks to all my editors.
