    Presentations for the FIRE Engineering External Review

    Tuesday, June 5, 2001

    Wednesday, June 6, 2001 Thursday, June 7, 2001 Note, the updates were mainly editorial and a reduction in number of Vgs. We also have an interesting MAC/PC issue with some VGs that were heavily compressed. They look fine on the screen and color print fine from a PC. However, when color printed from a MAC white objects are beige with little red speckles. Always something to learn.

    If you have any questions or comments about the agenda and technical discussions, please send email to Richard Thome or Phil The presentations will be added as they are made available.

    A limited number of call in lines are available by which remote participants can participate directly. Please dial 609-243-3505, wait for the beep, then enter the four digit pass code. This takes about 20 seconds, you can then ask your question, and enter the discussion. Note, this is not an 800 number. If you want to use one of the call-in lines send an email to and ask for the pass code by early Wednesday morning.

    If you want to send a CHIT (question or comment) to a particular speaker or individual, send an email to This email box will be in the meeting room.
