Montana RIB Update




Greetings!  Yes, some of us are on spring break, and it appears that the last MT LINCS email message may have been also! =0  Are you having trouble accessing some of the links in the update email?  If you ever have difficulty with links in the email, there are multiple solutions.
  1. Email MT LINCS with your problems.  If you are having problems, others are probably experiencing similar ones.  (A counseling hotline based upon the most current bestseller, The New Earth, will be set up to resolve all of your issues.  Just kidding - an email will suffice!) =) 
  2. Go to the MT RIB Discussions page at to take a look at the most current posts.  (On that page, you will see the chart below.)  You may also want to review what has been discussed in the past.  Go to the MT RIB Homepage at and click on Archives to review past postings.
  3. Copy and paste the links from the email to your browser.
MT LINCS loves problems, mistakes, and challenges!  Then we know learning is taking place!
Take a look at the categories below.  After running multiples tests in the MT LINCS kitchen, MT LINCS feels that all of the links below in blue should be working.  If all else fails, try one of the steps above.  Better yet, it is spring break.  Stop on down - the cookies are hot out of the oven!  Can you smell them? =)
