        Hi Ted,

        welcome to the mailing list. Yes, you'll find they're very addictive
        things indeed! :)

        I guess we all started similarly - I have to confess I killed my first
        5 or 6 VFTs quite quickly, mainly by underwatering and incessant poking
        and prodding (but I was only 7!)

        I haven't got a full collection from the end of '96 (I did have, but
        had a few bad computer crashes,) but there's the last 6 months worth
        or so on my webpage - hit the "links" button and choose "local links".

        also a few other CP resources there you might like and links to other
` sites.

        Hope this helps,
