Dear Colleagues --

Please note, we have experienced unprecedented demand for these digital
publications.  If you have difficulty accessing the site it is almost
certainly due to extremely high demand.

On our first day of availability, we had more than 30,000 "hits" by 7:00am
and more than 150,000 hits by close of business.  We are making necessary
technical adjustments but you may still experience delays.  Please be

We are also very interested in receiving comments and feedback, problems
or otherwise, we would like to hear from you.  This is (essentially)
"Version 1.0" of this offering we fully intend to continue to refine and
enhance services as time and resources permit.
