"Government big enough to supply everything you need is big enough to take everything you have ... The course of history shows that as a government grows, liberty decreases."
Gerald Ford

"future generations will wonder in bemused amazement that the early 21st century's developed world went into hysterical panic over a globally averaged temperature increase of a few tenths of a degree, and, on the basis of gross exaggerations of highly uncertain computer projections combined into implausible chains of inference, proceeded to contemplate a roll-back of the industrial age".
Professor Richard Lindzen, Massachusetts Institute of Technology

FREE OFFER: If you do not have your EDI specifications on-line, we would be happy to host them on our server. Did I mention the hosting would be free?

We can convert any of the specifications listed below into electronic format, ready for import into your system. The charge would be $75.00 US each.
Let us know your requirements.
