                    SDS Update with Internet Features

Dear Jeff,

Glad to hear SDS was helpful for your research. New SDS features make it is easy to deliver a lot of intelligence simply by pointing to links, rather than assembling email that is hard for people to wade through and keep organized. A recent report by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers recommending this method, shows how it works.

Another example is the review of Broadwater on March 23.

Let me know what you think.

Post Script:

Jeff, you can download the current SDS code from my web site. The new web management tools require that it be run using the standard SDS directory structure. Wayne Wetzel was successful using this method, so I am sure you can do it, if you have time.
