Hi All

This is not the first time Bruce is helping out somebody with spanish  

Bruce: Do you remember the guy from Peru who was doing exafs of Fe-Co  
alloys and I forwarded his spanish email with questions on Athena to  

He has completed his MS thesis on exafs of Fe-Co alloys and is trying  
for a  PhD.
I got the following email from Chachi last week:
[I met Chachi during a conference in Brazil.]

Its really great that so many of us benefit  from the experts in EXAFS  
taking so much care to answer questions in IFEFFIT mailing list. I  
appreciate it very much especially the great amount of help I received  
from Shelly ;)
