Congratulations MathGroup! As you have probably noticed, more than 20,000 messages have now been posted to MathGroup since its inception in 1988. We should all thank Steven M. Christensen, who created and moderates both MathGroup and the moderated Internet newsgroup comp.soft-sys.math.mathematica, for this achievement. The 20,000th message was posted by Hans Steffani, a Mathematica user at the Chemnitz University of Technology in Germany, in response to the question of Robert from the Vienna University of Technology, Austria, regarding the use of fractions as axes labels. this forum to discuss both Mathematica features that you really like, and those that need work. From users reporting "interesting bugs" to others concerned about everyone's safety following the 1989 earthquake (in addition to a question on symbolic math), MathGroup has addressed quite a wide range of topics. If you browse the MathGroup archives, you will find discussion of many features that have been improved, hopefully to your satisfaction, in more recent versions of Mathematica. MathGroup is a critical link in the Mathematica development chain, so keep sending in your questions and comments. =================== Maryka T. Baraka News Department Wolfram Research
