host the site for free. As for you club site, let me know if you need a
new home like www.dra.com or whatever.

Thema: Project DELTA
Is this the same John Mathews who once who worked at Project Delta?
If that's you, please respond with what you've been up to and your
current vital stats. I'm trying to update the Delta alumni list. I'm
also hoping to put together a Project Delta alumni web page including
various pictures and writings as well as a PDP-11 emulator running
RSTS/E. If you still have any Delta memorabilia, pictures, or backup
tapes (I can read them!), please let me know! If you know of any
deltoid e-mail addresses send them along!
