I expect Mike that Tim is well aware of the history of the CIX which just 
a year ago was reaching an all time low.  Now Bob collet has done well 
since he took over, but the CIX still does not have widespread support.  
It formed a CIX mail list about a month ago.  I joined.  *NO* traffic.  
It has never been able to communicate outside the bounds of its own 
members and until it finds a way to do this successfully will not become 
*THE* trade association that I think the industry really DOES need.  
Tim's posts may be a bit quixotic but they DO point to an unfilled need.
