Concerning Internet-related "things":
I would like to see a WEB page with a catalogue of all pertinent RP events. I
would volunteer, but my new job assignment will not permit that.
[A reminder: the mailing list is now on the WEB at]

Vendors participate by other means. I know they contact people in this list
*directly*. I would like to see more announcements in the list. In this way,
one could get updated on new products more quickly. Some vendors
---and, eventually, all vendors---will have WEB home pages for that purpose,
but many individuals still do not have access to the WWW. Besides, one would
have to visit those pages, instead of having the news delivered to one's "door".
