From the Ultra Tec Vault -- Previous Editions of the "SomeTimes"

 

Since Ultra Tec has been in business, we have been producing the "Some Times Newsletter." There are issues going back to the very early 80's and various other communications from way before then also. While we can't hand you a piece of real paper across cyberspace, we can make many editions available to you. 

We've included recent and relatively-recent paper editions -- if there is a copy you remember and misplaced along the way, or just a have an interest in seeing one, let us know and we'll either post it here or send you a real paper version. We hope you enjoy our history....
