This email is a friendly reminder suggesting you to register your Access
Grid on the Global AG node listings and/or verify that the current
listing information is up to date.


For those who don't know how to create a node listing, the following
instructions may be of some use.


*         Simply log on to the www.accessgrid.org website (as your user)
by selecting the "User Account" tab found at the top of the
http://www.accessgrid.org webpage.  For those who are new, you may have
to register first.


*         Then simply click on the "create content" link found on the
left had side of the page;


*         Then select "node listing";


Note: It would be greatly appreciated and valued if you can fill out as
much of the content as possible.  


Additionally it should be known that currently multiple people cannot be
owners of a AG node listing.  Therefore, it is recommended to create an
genetic account on the www.accessgrid.org website.  By using a generic
account, such as your local institution, you have the ability to
distribute the account information to a selected few, thereby allowing a
number of people the ability to edit one or more node listings.  This is
preferable, particularly on occasions where students and/or staff
members may change on a regular basis.


I am also happy to say that there are almost 300 Access Grids nodes
listed at the Global Node Listing website
http://www.accessgrid.org/nodes across 31 countries.


Can I also take this opportunity to remind you to add the extra
information to the Node listing.


*         Nodes from the listings appear randomly on the front page.
These are drawn from node listings that have images.


*         In regards to gaining GPS (Latitude and Longitude)
information, you can use Google Maps to gain such information.  A guide
on how to do it can be found at: http://www.accessgrid.org/node/767 


*         Remember to update your Node Capabilities, (Note, I highly
suggest those still Running AG version 2.x, to upgrade to 3.1 as soon as


o    AGTK 3.0 Capable

o    AGTK 3.1 Capable

o    inSORS IG2 Capable

o    inSORS IG1 Capable



For those nodes that are still owned by me (from being transferred from
AGCentral ages ago) or currently owned by someone else, please contact
me and I can transfer the node listing to you.  (You need to have a
registered account on the www.accessgrid.org website for the transferral
to occur)


If you have any problems in regards to the Global Node listing, please
don't hesitate to contact me.


Thanks very much for your time,
