      • Thanks to Jason Hollinger, we have now finished integrating "Ways of Enlichenment" and Discover Life. Each night, Discover Life pulls in names and photographs from Ways of Enlichenment, and builds an interactive checklist. Jason Hollinger and the folks at Ways of Enlichenment are keeping the names current, and any changes will be reflected on Discover Life as part of our taxonomic authority files. Thanks to our guru Jason, we are glad to have finally reached enlichenment!
      • Thanks to Markus Scherer who just produced six instructional videos that are linked on the album pages and the mothing pages. These videos tell you how to photograph moths, upload photogtraphs, ID them, and tag them with where and when. They are about five minutes each and we suggest you use them if you are a first time user or if you need help. Many thanks, Markus!
      • Discover Life now has a server mirroring www.discoverlife.org in Australia at the University of New South Wales. This and a backup server are part of Gerry Cassis' and John Pickering's project to database sepcies interacitons, funded by the Atlas of Living Australia (ALA). If you are in that neck of the woods, you may get faster service by going to http://ala1.science.unsw.edu.au or you can go to our home page and click on the "University of New South Wales" link at the very bottom of the page. Ultimately we hope to have servers elsewhere in the world -- if you'd like one at your location, let us know.
