completely finished, the next info packet: it's in the print 
shop now, and soon a thousand copies will be roaming the planet's 

Meetings: Hugh, dean, fm on the mac. Roger, hugh, reproducible 
Tapestry tests. Marcs, paul, good journals on hypertext. Michael, 
wjr, pull file off exobyte. Rick, ravi, friday at noon, the backend
