Also, I have been asked by someone not wired (to the Net that is)
to post the following inquiry:

       Are there any subscribers to DagNews that are producing
    daguerreotypes?  If they are not on my mailing list, have
    them contact me for my occasional newsletter regarding modern
    daguerreotypy.  Thanks!
