The IRAM web pages on observing schedules and project status are now edited directly on the new web site, and the facilities for proposal preparation and submission have been tested. The time estimator (Version 2.5) for the 30-m telescope runs independently on the Granada web pages (http://www.iram.es/IRAMES) and their Grenoble mirror (http://www.iram.fr/IRAMES), which will allow users to select the service closest to them. Please note that the proposal submission facility will operate exclusively over the IRAM Grenoble servers to avoid a double allocation of proposal numbers.
Our staff pages have become a bit less convenient for people who would like to send e-mails to IRAM by simply clicking on a name. We suspect that clear text e-mails in the html code of our web pages are seen as an invitation by SPAM senders. To counter automated web search and compilation programs, the text e-mails have been converted into graphics. Hopefully the level of unsolicited mails will decrease when the various search engines will update their databases, otherwise we will have to employ SPAM rejection software.
