I would greatly appreciate the Powerpoint and some sample queries. Perhaps
putting it online would be a better choice than sending it to me directly so
others can find it as well.

Ok, I will. However I hope someone actually reads them, from what I've seen
from the most recent list archives



most of the traffic is spam thus I wonder exactly how many WG members actually
bother to check the messages on the list.

Mythical guardians will be instructed to ask visitors name, purpose of visit,
