I checked out the site Tim.  It looks like an option we'll keep in mind. 
Right now TULIP is on the UMass Lowell server, and I have pretty good access
to it...It's running DEC UNIX on an Alpha with Netscape's server.

Do you guys think the URL is rather long?  I think so.

As I mentioned, I want to hook up a sever at Lowell that is pretty much
dedicated to TULIP.  The great advantage of this is, of course, I will not be
restricted regarding CGI, etc., and I will be able to set up a mailing list
using "majordomo".

I'd love to have "tulip.org", but that's taken by some church :-)  Check it out.

By the way, I would like to get an idea as to how much time we are each able
to put into TULIP next semester, or first half of '99.  Choose one below:

    A whole lot:      >10 hours per week
    Quite a bit:      7-9  "
    Here and there:   4-6  "
    Very little:      <1-3 "

The problem I have is that I am at the end of the second year of my Ph.D.
program, which is the toughest time of all.  This means I have a research
proposal to write in January, oral exams in June, plus cumulative exams each
month...and I have to take a course in quantum chemistry and continue with my
research an teach!  So, for the next seven months, I will be in the "here and
there" category, and maybe even "very little".  I would love nothing more than
to work full time on this, but we all know this won't put food in our mouths ;-)
