[12 October 1999]

The web site will not normally be updated this often, but Peter Bruce particularly wanted his letter (see Letters section) to be seen by on-circuit members. We all wish Peter a quick recovery from his op.

If you want to access this site via a "pretty route", which has some interesting byways, try going via Savona Books site (www.savonabooks.free-online.co.uk) from where the New York Microscopical Society can be reached. Follow the links Other Sites/Microscope Societies/Amateur Microscopical Societies where you will find this site, among others.



[10 October 1999]

Welcome to the PMS web site, which is brand new. The site offers members a resource to complement the existing club newsletter, Balsam Post. It will act as a reminder of forthcoming meetings, provide a sales and wants facility, permit easy access to the club's library and allow special-interest groups to be set up and keep in touch. As an example, the already existing PMS Springtail Group web site is now accessed through this site.

The site also offers non-members the chance to contact the club or individuals within the club. It is to be hoped that special-interest groups will be enriched by contacts outside of the club.
