Aubrey..that does not work, it opens my email client and sends a link to this page.... Go to EElife, click home, then Contact us at the bottom, find Brian fuller, send him and email and ask him to pass it on to me. Think that will work (thanks Brian!). Cheers

David The book is sold through normal channels- I am afraid I don't have any to sell. I am flattered and would be delighted to provide an autograph. Rather than hijack the thread further, contact me direct via the "email" option above. -Aubrey

Aubrey...howsit man! I am a Salisbury (Harare) boy, but always liked the slower pace of life in Bullies. I was once there on a job and kept going out every hour to feed the parking meter. I then got engrossed and forgot it. Went out and had a ticket - $3! In Harare it would have been $30. My kind of town! Had a look at your book - I want one! Have you got any for sale (would be nice to have an autographed copy!)? If not I'll have to try Amazon next time I get some overtime.....

David, I am also ex-Zimbabwe- born and raised in Bulawayo! Funny how many of us there are. Some time back I had an article published in Circuit Cellar and in the self-same issue was an article from someone living in Bulawayo. As to my comment on the worth of life, I thought I would be diplomatic.

Research group person is more effective and helpful if he/she has hands on experience. It is more fun to work people with more practical approach like you.

Nice to see another (ex) African on the site Aubrey. (I'm ex Zimbabwe.) Good story. "...back then life was cheap in South Africa..." It still is from what I hear. Which is presumably why you're in Canada and I'm in Australia....
