Last Issue for 2000
This is the last issue of the Bulletin for 2000, and it's also the last one of this century and this millennium!

Next year will see more improvements in the manner in which we deliver information via the Bulletin. The Bulletin on the Web will get a new look, and probably a new address, and the site will feature more and better photographs and links to more outside information sources. We are also developing a formal feedback mechanism to get input regarding any changes we make or should make.
