How do you know where you are going, if you do not know where you have come from?
We would like you to join our Society so that we have some idea as to who is using our web site. By knowing who our members are and what their interests are, we can tailor the content to our members. We would also like to count how many users we have so that when we apply for grants, which help pay for our activities and this web site, we can count you amongst our members.
The third reason that I have restricted access to the members’ area is that some people like to steal data and then charge other people for its use. All the data on this site was generated by myself and other members for the free use of the members and we do not want you paying for it.
