One final note - I have noticed that some readers seem to think that
BIOFORUM is the place to post announcements simply because of the
volume of discussion generated here versus the (intentionally) low
volume on BIONEWS/bionet.announce.  As you can see from the stats
above, you'll get much wider distribution of your announcement if you
post to BIONEWS/bionet.announce.
