John, thanks for your reply. (I can see I'm out classed in the typing department too. :) ) Becca and I have mixed feelings about the A Mill site but I suspect we will take you up on the invitation to visit some time. Besides electronic interactions are great but you cant beat an occasional 'eyeball' as hams call a face to face meeting. Which reminds me, I've been exploring the state of the (financially feasable) art of optical document scanning. Mostly with optical character recognition in mind but also images. OCR is practical (tho a bit pricey it's in the range that a so inclined cohousing group could swing it...) and very impressive. I expect to scan and post some articles here soon. But back to what reminded me of scanning. I've wondered about starting to accumulate images of list participants to be distributed in .GIF file format. It could be done with about 8K per mall mug shot I think. (A friend did a church directory which I've seen.) Any thoughts folks? I think it's interesting but not priority number one...
