From the Editor's Desk
Welcome to the latest issue of the High Tech AIDCourier.
Are you coming to the AIM Expo? This new trade show and
conference (http://www.aim-expo.com/) is the event to be

to celebrate the top awards of the industry. Make sure
you are there to see the Dilling, Percival, Williams and
