October 1999: CARA Site Visit

Here you will find converted power point presentations for all of the PowerPoint talks presented during the October 1999 site visit. They are converted via Microsoft's automatic conversion, and as such are optimized for PCs, sorry. I was at least able to overide the switch that mandated use of MSIE to view the pages. For users not running Windoze, I suggest having your own browser override the fonts -- under Edit/Preferences, choose fonts, and then choose "Use my default fonts, overriding document-specified fonts."
