Nothing profound to say in this editorial, just to thank the contributors and correspondents that make this newsletter possible and as usual to remind everyone that suggestions for authors/topics for the newsletter are very welcome. I also want to apologize for the delay in publication of this newsletter (it was due the first of the month). It happened due to a major computer problem at our Center. In the midst of the chaos and the rush to get the newsletter out as soon as possible, some errors (additional to the usual ones...) might have entered the newsletter. I apologize for those too.

The next newsletter is due February 1st. If everything goes well this newsletter should be available in the gr-qc Los Alamos archives under number gr-qc/yymmnnn. To retrieve it send email to gr-qc@xxx.lanl.gov (or gr-qc@babbage.sissa.it in Europe) with Subject: get yymmnnn (numbers 2-8 are also available in gr-qc). All issues are available in the WWW:
A hardcopy of the newsletter is distributed free of charge to the members of the APS Topical Group on Gravitation. It is considered a lack of etiquette to ask me to mail you hard copies of the newsletter unless you have exhausted all your resources to get your copy otherwise.

If you have comments/questions/complaints about the newsletter email me. Have fun.
