Eesh!  Writing a book is a *lot* of work!  I know: it took me nine  
months to write Essentials of Metaheuristics, a book which has few  
examples and no assignments and is only 230 pages.  (btw if you've not  
seen it, get it at )

I dunno.  I mean MASON needs a *manual*, which might be nice to put  
out.  But that alone would be a large task.

Do tell!  :-)  No, it's not games.  Though PacMan was fun to write.
