OK Bobby you wrote,
" I spoke to Barry about that recently and he has just been too busy to
get that tedious job done. I agree, let the AKA use some of this $100,000 to
hire someone -- or activate the computer committee -- to complete the CD of
old publications. I know Tony T. was working on the old INDEX, another jewel
a publication and he could probably use help too. There is so much wonderful
information in the old publications and it is a shame it is unavailable to
vast majority of the membership. People would just flip over what is in it.
Peter Tieback's old "Mop Shop" column is priceless. The old fishroom tour
articles are great. JAKA when it was purely a scientific publication and
separately was amazing. Rosario has a great old article on the history of
American Annual Spawning Mediums. There is tons of original stuff by Scheel
and Roloff. There are many long translated articles by Walter Foersch -- on
furzeri, oeseri, walkeri. There is a lot of translated material. People just
no idea the enormous wealth of unbelievably good material we are sitting on,
plus the old publications give a good idea of what the AKA used to be like.

There has been a lot of posts to this list on this subject and it seems like
nothing gets done so.
How much would it cost to get YOU to work on it with the cost of your
computer upgrades included? Do not underestimate your costs?
I think You have the JAKA's Needed to do the job.
Draw it up and submit it to the board VIA This list.
If it is done in this manner we all know WHO and WHAT are the hold backs.
