Re: Antonio's grant
It just occurred to me that someone will have to translate the PDF.
It seems there are no vocal dissenters to establishing a grant fund for
this research. Let's then start building a fund. First of all, does
anyone have a non-profit bank account/org that would have a tax free
status? If so, you are elected the lucky collection center for the
first (and perhaps only) DML research fund. Sans a nonprofit cover, I
would be willing take checks and keep records in a regular account that
I would have to set up. (I would not want to mix with my personal or
business account. If there is a problem with this, post the issue
please. I think we could start an account next monday if everyone is
good with the idea. Barring any changes to this line of thinking, I
will publish my address and the account name for the checks next Monday
I am at a slight disadvantage because the nearest Western Union office
is 70 miles away in Gillette but I do get down there every couple of
weeks to get groceries and I am sure the time frame is not critical.
Of course we haven't heard back from Antonio yet. He probably has to
translate all this chatter.
Heck, since there seems to be some genuine interest in this process, I
might even give in and put a sawbuck in the pile just to get it going.
Any time I can help get a paper out for review at the cost of a Wendy's
lunch........ and I didn't even have to remove overburden!

I'll match Frank's offer. And I wouldn't mind the PDF either :-D
