In Winter 2000 Mr. Jenny told the CTO of DreamLab inc. that he would like to go online with his Database. Well ! What looked like an easy, job turned out to be one of the most complex challenges for the DreamLab inc. Team. A custom made conversion . tool had to be developed (the original Database was 'constructed' on DOS !!) The cross - referring Decrease & Enlarge Search was hand tailored ! But according to our DreamLab inc.'s Mission Statement : 'We contribute all our efforts and skills . to improve scientific progress and to bring dreams to reality for the benefit of all mankind.' We joined forces with Mr. Jenny who dedicated over 15 years to collect and categorise what is known in the world of Orchids.
Maybe You based your Orchid research on the legendary 'litbul'. CD-Rom ! For many years Mr. R. Jenny provided Universities, Institutes, Orchid Societies and Orchid Enthusiasts throughout the World with the most comprehensive collection of Literature and References about Orchids known. Now for the first time ever this Metadatabase is available on the Internet.
