Subject: Re: ReU2~: Natalie, how 'bout this idea?

Could it be that the possibility of getting a grant for further

development on our site might motivate someone to take it over

while Natalie is gone? Bringing in grant money goes a long way

toward tenure these days.

My thoughts exactly. When I read that posting last night, I started

thinking that the timing was good -- that somebody could take what

we've already got to use as a start and could build on it, ideally

grabbing some grant money along the way, involving grad students, etc.

Sometime soon I'll post something clear and simple about the different

tasks I've been talking about. Running ADS-L is quite easy, btw. The

only part that takes any time is not something that has to be part of

the job -- compiling daily archives by hand. But let me not let myself

turn this into another long ramble. This is a very quick login in the

midst of a very hectic day.
