hey Tim -
All these kinds of group projects always start with the greatest enthusiasm and slowly wind down to the final slog. Still, when it is finally over and you've had a bit of time to distance the hassles from the outcome, you can look back with a smile and say "That was fun." Maybe not enough to do it again, but fun anyway.
Thank you for putting up with all our group fickleness and for being the anchor! Happy New Year!
(and I will pm you my new address)
