Hello Everyone,

First many thanks to DaveH and Richard Westalake for getting the
listproc and DNS going. DNS is well known to be a black art and Birkbeck
only got theirs handed over today/yesyerday so they have done very well.
Thanks to all of *you* for being patient - if we can crack the problem of
e-mail we can crack anything!

Please start playing with the glossary tool. Yes, there are one
or two small bugs and I have a little more work to do on the software,
but we can get lots of stuff in. As I've already said, we'll probably
need to restart after we have tried it out first time. Lesley and Stefan
are waiting for *your* input so that they can get a feel for the problems
(e.g. ambiguous terms , capitalisation, etc.)

I heard recently of an important event later this year which will
be adopting the hyperglossary, again in a molecular context. It's
embargoed until a week or so from now, but shows that we can attain c
ritical mass quite rapidly. I also think there is interest in the C++
community. So let's get some experience.
