ANTS Connect Accounts and Quirks - Need Help?
------------------------------------
If you need help with ANTS Connect or you did not receive your account
notification e-mail, please contact Karen Brockney.

We expect that Connect will work smoothly. However, with any new
system, you may experience some quirky behavior. Don't hesitate to
report weird errors or puzzling screens. Every bit of information helps
us to improve the system for everyone.
