EFITA newsletter / 425 / European Federation for Information Technology in Agriculture, Food and the Environment
To read this newsletter on the efita.net web site...
You will find all the papers and posters presented at EFITA2009 on the efita.net web site. We loaded all the papers from a cdrom that the University of Wageningen kindly provided us with.
I know that this efita.net web site that I maintain since 2000 (if I well remember) is "old fashion". But I do believe that the most important point is not to build beautiful web sites but to feed them regularly. I see so many dead "beautiful" sites (I will not give their URL!) and I also see sites like this one of acta-informatique.fr that are very efficient thanks to an excellent CMS and that are far more successful than other sites the costs of whose were much higher.

Bad taste jokes
I know that all the jokes that I publish are not very good, and that they could offend some of you.
Please, forgive me. I know that most of you like to be not "politically correct".

Two women were playing golf. One teed off and watched in horror as her ball headed directly toward a foursome of men playing the next hole.
The ball hit one of the men. He immediately clasped his hands together at his groin, fell to the ground and proceeded to roll around in agony.
The woman rushed down to the man, and immediately began to apologize. 'Please!!!! Please!!!! allow me to help. I'm a Physical Therapist and I know I could relieve your pain if you'd allow me, she told him.
'Oh, no, I'll be all right. I'll be fine in a few minutes,' the man replied. He was in obvious agony, lying in the fetal position, still clasping his hands together at his groin.
At her persistence, however, he finally allowed her to help. She gently took his hands away and laid them to the side, loosened his trousers and put her hands inside. She administered tender and artful massage for several long moments and asked, 'How does that feel'?
He replied: It feels great, but I think my thumb's still broken.....
