Steve,

	Unfortunately because of our e-mail lists, were we to post
this message to each list, some people would receive it 30 times and
complain loudly.  I don't think that it would fly on a monthly basis.
I'll think about setting something up on a rotating basis possibly.
Currently the FAQs are only going to be posted to bionet.announce on
the first of each month.  I am going to modify the info sheet which is
sent out in response to all subscription requests to indicate how to
retrieve the FAQs.  The best thing would be if all BIOSCI users
subscribed to BIONEWS/bionet.announce, but we don't force this on
people.

Happy Holidays!

Dave
