Since I'm not a student (at a school anyway), and I'm forced to work for a
living 8), I occassionally have disposable income for such toys as the
stereoscope.  BTW, it was a Russian model for $500.  Now if I can only get a
used scanning electron m'scope for under $5000. <vbg>

I have a nice relationship with a graphics/video business called How it
Works where I can scan and use Photoshop (and other tools) to correct,
enhance and control the final images. In addition, I can fire the data right
into a Color Printer and make PHOTOGRAPHIC (not laser) prints up to 11x17.
This could be a possible service to others in the future, but I will avoid
any commercial comments.  In fact, I will be pursuing this concept with
non-professional paleontologists as a means of getting our stuff out in
print within the bounds of reasonable costs.

Within the context of the threads on publishing on the net, I can attest
that the means are available, today, for the publishing part.  The peer
review and editorial issues are entirely separate.
