Subject: Web Site Listing
All:  I have completed auditing the web site listing that goes to all new loop members.  Non-functional sites have been removed or corrected and new sites have been added in many cases.  I believe I have added in all loop member's web sites and others recommended by loop members.  However, when I had the project about 80% completed, due to operator error (that's me) I accidently erased the corrected listing.  :-(  So back to square one and redoing of all prior work.  I tried hard to not miss anything and I believe it is correct as it stands; however, please scan the listing and if you find sites missing, in error, etc. please let me know and I will later issue an addendum to the listing.  I have personally visited each site to verify the URLs and believe they are correct.  Fred
