I posted the attachments to the Biomass Cooking Stoves web site: http://www.bioenergylists.org/en/content/stoves-comparisons
as attachments to the story on that page.
So if you are visiting it from the home page, (http://www.bioenergylists.org) click on the story title to get the story page and be able to download the attached files.
(There has been a lot of online virus activity floating around in email this spring - and while I've tried to preserve the functionality on the list, it wouldn't surprise me if there is an attachment filter in effect again. I'll have to check when I get into the office tomorrow - i'm home and have limited access).
Happy June 1,
