The CD is quite an interesting addition to JARS. I just got my copy yesterday, so have not had a chance to do more than briefly look over it.
Looks great!
Just a thought.

Ken, thanks so much for your feedback. It's a really interesting CD presentation, in my view; I hope we will be able to feature additional presentations like this in forthcoming issues.

Enjoy!
