OTHER reason then to communicate with you about this packet unless you give us
permission to do so.  Our packets are not available for direct download because
keeping track of who is using them, when they're being used, etc., is
important for our ongoing mission, grant writing, fund raising, and non-profit status
purposes (basically, keeping track helps us keep doing what we do!).
