Hi Thomas.  Other people can respond as they see fit, but I think you  
will find that we have a very good reputation for getting back very
fast, particularly with well-constructed questions that we can answer
easily! You'll find that I respond to a lot of the questions myself,
mostly because I know the system well (for obvious reasons :-).

BTW, if you're doing ABM biological systems, Steven Saul ([log in to unmask]
) is on the list and has been stress-testing MASON with gigantic
simulations of fish populations. What he's doing is on the outer
bounds of MASON's capabilities because the populations are so huge, so
he might be a good person to talk to.
