While the summer is not quite over yet in Europe (we hope), I am
going to sneak out for a few days of holidays in Spain. Hence, while
you read the three interesting papers in this issue I will indulge in
some other pleasures for a change!
I will have important news for you in the next or next but one
issue: the negotiations with Springer about how J.UCS will continue
from 2000 onwards are reaching its final stage: I think chances are
good that J.UCS will get quite a boost!
