Note from the Editor regarding Volume 8:

In our efforts to maintain continuity of the journal we are posting 8 articles. The articles have been reviewed and we have made efforts to contact all of the authors. All are acceptable in content for publication, although they are not properly formatted, and in some cases the figures are missing or were illegible. Nonetheless we have posted these articles to give the authors' credit for their work in 2003. We expect to reformat all of these articles in the near future.

On a personal note, we would like to acknowledge the passing of a member of our editorial team and dear friend, Michael A. Fenton. We have felt this loss deeply and it has been difficult for us to proceed with the Journal in a timely manner. However we are determined to carry on.
