I really have no problem with it.

This could be extremely hard to coordinate. Even though the BNML has been
coming out fairly timely,stuff happens and it becomes late. Even
coordinating this release date would still give the non-computer member a
disadvanatge. All a computer person has to do is send off an email. As you
well know we read our email at our convenience. It's going to be there the
next time I read my email. A non-conmputer person would have to make a
possbly expensive phone call , might get my son (on a golf league) night and
possibly wind up wasting money for a fish he might not get. I used myself as
a hypothetical situation here. If he sent the order by mail , he might not
get the fish. I agree there has to be a way to do this fairly. We just
haven't come up with it as yet.

I agree. He would have to have someone do this for him. This might become a
pain in the butt for the person doing it. I don't mean to insinuate any
thoughts that this hypothetical person is a bad person. Possibly just busy
and can't get to it.

Agreed it should be explored to the limit.

A most enjoyable experience for me also. No thanks is required. I remember
it well and like most killie people I enjoyed watching you see all these
new fish that you hadn't seen before. You are experienced now. The next time
you see a beginner look at the awe in their eyes , as they are seeing all
these fish for the first time. Sit down and have a beer with them if you are
so inclined. This is another excellant experience associated with our

Interested to see how you would go about this test.

I have no idea at this point. Give me some time to think about it.
>Likewise, what would be the measurement of failure or danger?
Let me think about this also. Hey folks anyone else can chime in anytime
you want to.
