About This Issue

This is the second edition of the Digital Quarterly Update. Using this form, we are now able to send the Quarterly Update to you via E-Mail. The E-Mail version is composed of pure ASCII characters, so itís not as pretty as the 'hard-copy' (Snail Mail) version, nor is it as elegant as the (World Wide) Web Page version. But all the facts are here.

The DQU is evolving and we welcome your feedback. If you want to receive the hard-copy version of this, which also has some nice graphics and quite a few more 'commercials', go to the bottom of this letter for our address and phone numbers.

Thanks very much for subcribing to the Digital Quarterly Update. We look forward to serving you in your educational needs.

Jon Sisk
