Hello everyone, The Mathematica mailing list and newsgroup have been in existence for more than twenty years now. In January 2005, we past the 50,000 message mark. Now, in only a little more than four years, we have added another 50,000. This is very gratifying to me and I hope that this effort will continue to grow and help as many users as possible. A little personal history. I was honored to be a student and friend of Bryce DeWitt, who some of you know was one of the finest theoretical physicists of the last 100 years. One of the things he told me back in the 70's was "Make sure all your projects are useful, work that will still be valuable to others twenty years from now." I have tried to take this to heart in doing the moderation of this group for twenty years and running sunfreeware.com for fifteen years. It is obvious that Stephen, the folks at Wolfram Research, and many of the contributors to this group also follow this philosophy. Thanks to all of you. Steve Christensen Moderator
