I can't volunteer, since I'm usually working during the hours the Institute
office is open.

Anyone thinking of dropping in on the Institute should be aware that their
building will be extensively renovated during 1999-2000. Accordingly, they
will be in temporary quarters for quite a while, and I suspect much of the
collection will be inaccessible during that time.

For those unfamiliar with the Babbage Institute, they have a fair amount of
material available at <>.

>(besides, what else are you going to do when it's snowing

That's never a problem. I'm always figuring I'll get projects done "during
the winter," and I rarely get done with more than a handful of them. :-{
