General Comments

Sometimes, we receive requests from persons in which they want us to supply them with a great deal of information about a topic (generally, a very broad topic). For example, someone may ask: "Can you tell me about radio astronomy?" [The topic may also be SETI, optical astronomy, physics, electrical engineering, or any of a large number of topics]. If you have a very specific question that can be answered fairly briefly, then we might be able to help you. However, a question like "Can you tell me everything you know about radio astronomy?" will show that you haven't done your homework on the basics, and we can't do that part for you. Please keep requests brief and to the point.

The method for obtaining feedback from your questions is via e-mail to our webmaster. Below is shown a list of topics that are highlighted. When you click on a topic, your e-mail program will start a new e-mail from you to our webmaster with the Subject already filled in. Just fill in the message, including the question(s) or comment(s) you have as well as your full name. Make sure that a valid e-mail address for you is placed in the FROM line; (if this is not done, our webmaster will not respond). It would be very helpful also to tell us something about yourself (e.g., location, employer, job title, area(s) of expertise, interests, etc).

Please note that when e-mailing our webmaster, he may choose to forward your e-mail to another person in our group. Thus, there may be a delay of a few days in getting back to you. If you haven't heard from us within a week or so, please send our webmaster another message indicating that you haven't heard from us, and he will try to expedite a response. There is an exception to this. If our webmaster feels your question(s) or comment(s) are flippant or "off the wall", he may then decide that a reply is not warranted. Just kidding! Send us any and all questions! We're happy to help.
