And Sue Graves is working with NTF to help with all of this, so if there
is anything we can do to help show value to your employers please let
her know.

The individual donations are great - they've quickly added a bit over 2
weeks' time to the "financial clock" regarding my "full time" efforts
(apparently my definition of full time is a bit unusual).  Please help
keep those coming in.

it's going to take Institutional members to provide the more significant
resources NTF needs to bring the bigger goals on-line, things like even
faster NTP development, completing Ntimed, getting the General Timestamp
API spec'd and implemented, and our Certification and Compliance
programs operational:

We've heard from some institutions that they'll be joining us, but
nothing has happened there yet.

Thanks a bunch, folks!

Please keep spreading the word.
