Re: VMs: Suggestions: VMS Meeting (UK) and VMS Periodical

Is there sufficient interest to make a UK meeting worthwhile? I
understand that one was successfully held in Tewkesbury in 1998, and feel
that, at the very least, an annual get-together would be useful and
fun. I am happy to host such a gathering (if the numbers are modest) at
my home in Gloucester, can accommodate, and would like to try to get
something arranged for spring 2005.
Sounds good to me: my diary for Spring is... currently blank. :-)
On a similar note, how about an irregular e-periodical? It would be nice
if current thought, articles, discussion could be collated in something
more permanent than individuals' websites -perhaps a quarterly
PDF. Again, if interest is sufficiently strong, I would be more than
happy to edit such a periodical and email it to subscribers (no charge,
I think Jan Hurych's e-periodical is pretty good in that respect: though
it's also true that a lot of ongoing research (like page ordering, the
zodiac hand, etc) is still fairly fragmentary / incomplete.
I would also note that, unlike (for example) Rene Zandbergen's
exceptionally good http://www.voynich.nu/ , few VMs websites could really
be classified under the heading of "discussion" (many arguably being closer
to "diatribe"). And yes, I'd include my own in that latter category.
:-o What discussion we have is largely on-list, yet the problems of
threading meaning out of 12+ years of archives are still unresolved. :-(
