Hi, All

First of all, this is probably the last message for
the year, so I would like to wish everyone a happy
holidays and New Year. I'm hoping to do a better
job at getting back to once month, so there aren't
so many articles. Once again, I would like to thank
the Marmam editors for providing this platform for
which this service could not be possible and to all
of you for providing all the PDFs of your new papers.
I know it can be frustrating that I don't post your
pre-prints, but I do catalogue them into the database,
and track their process till the final version comes
out for my postings.

There are quite a few PDFs this time around.
For those of you who are using the museum FTP server,
the files will be up shortly. I understand the problems
some of you are having and I will be moving over to
Dropbox and Google Drive the first of the year. Anyway,
down to business and see you next year.

Here's the latest posting of new PDF's that are available.
Larger file sizes have been included. Abstracts also
available on request. Please let me know of any mistakes.

Make all requests to: janiger at cox.net
 
Cheers!
