Ed,

Another stellar edition of the magazine. The amount of high quality material in the magazine available at the click of the mouse is nothing short of amazing. I do believe that as time goes on more and more people out there in cyberspace will discover the eNTS Magazine and find it an unending source of fascinating, informative materials that they cannot easily get, or get at all, anywhere else. The work you put into this effort wins you many good karma points as Joe Zorzin is inclined to say. Thanks again from all of us, your brother and sister Ents.

A lot of fancy websites exist with tree materials, but none that I've seen are even in the same universe as ours. Yes, I'm prejudiced, but I am also saying it like it is.

Ed, I second Bobs comments. The eNTS Magazine is second to none. I know of no other Magazine about trees that comes close. Your constant compilations of our field trips and discussions are outstanding. Thanks for all you do! Larry

Larry and Bob,

Thank you for the compliments. It is approaching two years now since we switched to the BBS format. There are some drawbacks to the format, but the benefits far outweigh those issues. The posts are archived and already sorted. It saves me hours upon hours of labor trying to convert the posts to webpages. It gives me time to do other things and to pull together the posts into the magazine format. I do not feel the dread of trying to catch up on creating webpages for the website and actually look forward to putting together the magazine. I usually work on it every day or two and try to keep up so that it isn't all left to the last minute.

Ed
