    Well, I was there in 1994 together with one of the founding members
    Bart De Pontieu, but also Walter Nissen, Mike McCants, Bram Dorreman,
    Kurt Jonckheere, Paul Maley and many many others, who I am not
    forgotten !
    Bart was the president of the BWGS(Belgian Working Group Satellites)
    which has itself specialised in observing and measuring flashing
    rocket bodies.  Thanks to the response on Seesat L we have learned a
    lot about that.
    One of the great activities were also the discovery and the
    predictability of Iridium flares and the progams, like those of Rob
    Matson who made predicition possible.
    I have become much less active but still very much interested as I am
    still following the messages with great interest on this list.
    Although many more have been a long time member of this list, I am
    still surprised it is even more active as ever before, not in the
    least to the moderater Ted Molczan who is doing a great job with this
    list !
    So Seesat L is still going strong and probably one of the oldest
    mailing lists still running since the Internet became public.
    Some of you still remember the meetings we had some time ago, Eurosom
    1, 2 and 3 in Belgium and Scotland, great things to remember and all
    related to Seesat L.
    Hopefully we'll meet again somewhere in the future.
