Group Description

Mesozoic Eucynodonts: What the hell is a Eucynodont?



Eucynodonts are mammals and proto-mammals, (and proto-proto-mammals). It's all about our distant ancestors, back in the days of the dinosaurs and before.


What's planned for this group?


Nothing whatsoever. It's about evolution.



A neat trick
Rather than trying to open files, there's another option which seems to work. (I just tried it.) If you put the computer cursor on the file and press the right mouse button, this enables a copy to be saved onto your hard disc. Once it's downloaded, you can access the thing as often as you like.



Adding files
Please remember to bear the capacity in mind. Personally, I tend to save older files of a similar sort of size onto my hard disc, and then delete them. That way, should anybody happen to want them, they can be reloaded. If 'old' files are lists of some kind, they shouldn't be deleted.



Bandwidth

Bandwidth is finite and this can cause difficulties with access. There are various things which might be tried in such circumstances. As mentioned above, one option is to copy rather than open.
Other possibilities include: a. trying again later; or b. send the person who uploaded the file a polite e-mail asking if they could forward a copy. Experience suggests paleo-folk are both eccentric and unusually helpful. Of course, they might also happen to be in the middle of Patagonia and unable to respond for a few years.



The link goes to my central index of Mesozoic Eucynodonts. This contains information on at least the vast majority of genera ever named, and a couple not yet described. Sometimes, the info might even be accurate.
