Could someone address the current cryopreservation methods and provide some 
analysis as to why most of the commentary of late indicates it is very 
speculative that it might work. Is it possible we are doing more damage with 
the way the methodology is currently executed than without the protectants. 
Also, have there been any recent thaws of animals to determine the short term 
effects of cryopreservation?  

By the way, for active marketeers of cryopreservation services, all the money 
in the world based on fancy marketing and wasting of mucho $$ pales by 
comparison to some simple steps as mundane as a genuine interest in the 
possibly "client", ( and I don't use that term loosely- -for that is how the 
party should be treated) and a follow-up letter and even phone call to show 
some real interest. Cryonics necessarily has to be cool, but a little warmth 
prior to the cool seems to be good medicine for the living. Just a thought.
