New WWM articles  6/24/08 > Hi Bob, > There are two articles I'd like to suggest for WWM or CA. > One is my moray eel bite piece that was in TFH last year (September). > I also had a look at the WWM article on phosphates > http://www.wetwebmedia.com/phosphatemar.htm and thought it was maybe a little bit brief, so I'd also like to suggest an unpublished article I wrote to possibly even take its place.  My simple question: Since you are travelling and may not always have a  good internet connection, which would be helpful for picture files, is it OK to send the articles to you?> > Cheers, > Marco. drinking mit some Deutschlunders from Bavaria> Hello, the mentioned articles are attached. <Ahh, very nice indeed!> Feel free to change, what should be changed or let me know what needs to be fixed, also if more pictures are needed. <I've looked over quickly... they appear comprehensive (for pet-fish purposes) and complete graphics-wise> @Bob: I see we have another hobby in common. Enjoy your beer. <Oh yes mein herr! Sorry to have missed you at Interzoo... were you there?> Cheers, Marco. <Will you accept a paltry $400 U.S. (not Euros!) for one time posting of this work on WWM Marco? Have these already been sold into other petfish (pulp) magazines? If not, would you like or even mind if I made submission, introduction of these to a UK mag. for you? Cheers, BobF>

New WWM articles  6/26/08 @Bob: I see we have another hobby in common. Enjoy your beer. <Oh yes mein herr! Sorry to have missed you at Interzoo... were you there?>  <<No, I had no opportunity to get to Interzoo. Neither did I have a ticket, nor was I able to get enough free time to get to Nuernberg and back. I regret that, because I would certainly have enjoyed talking to you and other crewmembers.>>  Cheers, Marco. <Will you accept a paltry $400 U.S. (not Euros!) for one time posting of this work on WWM Marco? Have these already been sold into other petfish (pulp) magazines? If not, would you like or even mind if I made submission, introduction of these to a UK mag. for you? Cheers, BobF>  <<If you feel they are worth that much... I'll re-invest it into the hobby, exchange an older tank. The moray toxin article was suggested to UK Ultramarine, but they did not like the pictures, eventually it was printed in US TFH. The phosphate article was not sold to any print magazine. Although I wrote it to fill a gap on WWM (in some answer I wanted to refer to a phosphate article), if you think it could be printed, the additional income would be great. If you tell me where to send it, I could adjust the article/s and pictures (will need high resolution for print) to the guidelines of the magazine. Thank you very much Bob. Cheers, Marco.>> <Will try the HPO4 piece to Ultramarine... and send along payment for all in WWM. Danke, BobF>

Recent Article Postings I gotta get a hold of your time machine. Following the "What's New" link I found the two most recent articles posted show a Feb 27, 2004 posting date. Next trip could you advise on the price of certain stocks? ;-) Charlie H. <Go long on Sea Biscuit in the 7th! Hee hee. Thanks. Bob F>
