from the AKA get here a few days to a week after everyone else. This time

provide via a password protected web page these listings at about 2-3 days
after the listings had been sent via USPS? I am farily busy now with all
kinds of things hatching out, but I would be willing to do the mass
e-mailing or with Barry's help maintain the appropriate blind, password
protected, web page on the AKA site
