Hi Richard,
Thanks for your encouraging note. This list was created to replace the
project specific lists (that is, Quest - NASA educational outreach
projects). You were probably on one of those lists.

With your interest in aeordynamics, you may want to take a look at the
"new kid on the block". Aero Design Team Online just opened for public
viewing yesterday, and promises to be a terrific addition to the thus far
Space oriented projects. ADTO will focus on the "Aeronautics" part of
NASA's name.

For any of you who find yourselves on this list and want out, please feel
free to send a mesage to:  listmanager@quest.arc.nasa.gov 
in the body of your message type unsubscribe discuss
That should do it.
Linda
