Dear Alexander,

        Thank you! :-) I am a mere amateur and am deeply indebted to persons
like yourself for my knowledge. I have forwarded your kind message to
the rest of the people on the Time List to see what could be done about
your situation. Perhaps you can use Internet services like XOOM and
Geocities for e-mail and webhosting? I am waiting to see what the other
persons on the Time List collaboration group have to say about your
ideas; I personally think that your possible contributions are excellent
and would welcome you to our discussion.
        Alas we do not have any financial support or institutional backing
right now, for our work is contrary to some conventional notions, but if
we can develop our ideas a bit more we might have something that could
be presented to the right people for grant funding. We shall see what
develops! ;^)

Kindest regards,


PS, If necessary I could mirror your Web site, I have 5 megabytes of
space available that I have not used...
