Re: dinosaur table-your opinion



Hi all, and hi Vladimir,
I thought this wasn't a "private" topic, so I took the liberty to forward it
to the Dinosaur Mailing List, to which I'd recommend you to subscribe - if
you're not already member.
Go to http://www.psych.ucsb.edu/~rowe/dinosaur/DML.html and just follow the
instructions.
I'm not that good for the dates -:p- so if some members have further
comments... But all this is very subjective.
