March 01 Update:


Hello DF members and guests! As can be expected the month of February 2004 was a busy one for the DF, as evident by this month’s update. We, the webmasters, consider the DF to still be on its ‘sea trials’, so to speak, thus we will be continuing to ‘fine tune’ the site and make the necessary adjustments to provide a much more user-friendly research and modeling experience. Without saying, we more than welcome the input / suggestions from you, the DF members and visitors. So, if you have ideas to share please feel free to contact us. We would like to thank all contributors for sharing their fine work this past month, of which highlights of the March Update include:
