Other things you *CAN'T* do on the internet:
The last service mentioned is not that great as it sounds!
At the moment it is impossible to get connected with the ANBG, but the last
time I wanted to know e.g. which spp. of _Drosera_ were grown in AU, I got
the first 40 in the alphabet and then the list was cut off for no obvious
reason (no chance for _D.zonaria_!). At least in the last few months, there
was apparently no way (or time) in AU to solve these purely technical

Kind regards
