Thank you very much Chris and jr for your commitment and work on this. I 
believe that the availability again of Friedrich's work is a great 
memorial for him.

Thanks, Chris, I think it's a good way to keep his teaching online. I - 
and I think many of us - received great inspiration from him.

my belated thanks to Chris, Andrea, and Thorsten, who took care of all the ..
cumbersome legal stuff, leaving me to do the nice bits :-).

as the whole project was "demand driven", I also want to thank all who took, and
continue to take, an interest in the FL site.

fyi, as of today, there have been visits from 173 different countries.


regards, jr.
