Hi,

with great enjoyment I've seen the Program and the lectures of this year´s ATS-Conference! It's a pity that I can't visit this show, but it's not possible because of several reasons. So, my question is as follows:
We have a tarantula Society here in Germany with round about 400 Members and I'm the Editor of the "Mitteilungen", the official "Spider-Magazine" of this Organisation (download-example: http://www.dearge.de/xsonst/leseprobe.pdf). I would like to get an article about the forthcoming ATS-conference.
Well, is there anybody out there who would be so friendly to write a summary for our german magazine (in english of course) about the Conference and especially about the lectures which will be held there ?
If there is someone out there who wants to this favor for me, then please get in contact to me (von-wirth@dearge.de)!

With best regards, Volker

Volker,
You might want to contact Joy Reed, a member of this forum and contributing editor of the ATS Journal. She is a writer by profession and seemingly a heck of a nice person. Just some thoughts.....

Wow Volker, you sure have changed since that last avatar photo :)

Any chance of getting that article you wrote on identifying Haplopelma spp. in English?

I'd be happy to help out...just let me know!

BTW, I'll answer your private Mail within the next days.

What I want to know Volker, are you wearing Axl Rose like tights??? Perhaps a studded cup? :D I'd guess you weren't a 'Tears for Fears' fan?

I think I was a Ramones nut at that time, blue jeans, leather jacket, converse allstars, bad Ramones like bowl haircut, even worse guitar riffs, etc.... Still love that band.....

God damned, WE would!!!!! ;) :D

@Steve:
Axel Rose is a nice guy, but I like more those guys which wear leather instead of tutus!;P BTW, on the forthcoming Friday I'll be on a 3 days Festival with Marylin Manson, Metallica and Iron Maiden. That will kick ass and kill my head!!!;) :D

Cheers, Volker

Volker,

I always wanted to ask, why are you making the "I Love You" sign in that picture? Did you mean to make the "Devil Horns"? If so, I'm pretty sure it's supposed to be the left hand and your thumb has to touch between your middle finger and ring finger..... ;P

In some locales, that is the 'hang loose' or 'take it easy' sign.

I don't care what you say, he's a hottie, and 15 years ago, we'd have been the hottest metal couple around ;)

is that a mini (table) tripod cruelly abandoned to fend for itself on the counter back there? (sniffle)

hey man, if you're going to abuse and neglect photography equipment, feel free to send it my way. ;)
