Dear Beech people,
You may wonder why we call 7. Jan. "a little late" for a Season's greeting.
We would like to add that we in fact sent this message for you on the 24th December. It goes through the IUFRO-server and we were not aware of the 50 kb limit there for such messages to pass directly to you.
For messages exceeding this limit we realized that approval from the IUFRO secretariat are needed - which is why you got this message not just a little late but very late.
We'll try to do it better in 2010.
