The "Links to sites" has concerned me somewhat. With all of the links
that have been included in our discussions it seems to me that many of them will
eventually no longer be available. This is cause for concern since the links
often provide key insight into the subject at hand. I wish that we could somehow
preserve this additional information for future reference and research, though I
realize that the cost in time and money and storage may be prohibitive.

I'm definately with Rene on this. A page
by page approach is best. We talk
enough rubbish on list anyway. The main
assumptions about each page would be
more useful. I.E. the discussion about
degrees on f67r2. These strands tend
to get lost.
General theories I
would omit. Only assumptions that have gained a consensus
included. Links to sites of interest could always be included.
other thing I would also suggest is the opportunity for like minded
to have some sort of forum. Each person approaches the vms from a
angle. Some of these approaches intersect. A method of not only
this information with the group but also sorting it into subject
would allow those of like mind to not only keep up with the general
but also develop a strand of their own.
Who knows, with an organised
approach we might actually make some more
progress. I already feel as
