I must always ask (usually more than once) for updates to the "Mechanical Systems" and "Time Series" packages. I have tried to get some help with what I believe to be "bugs" in the "Time Series" package and have received NO HELP from the developers of the package (My first request for help was well over a year ago). > When I had problems with the initial installation of Mathematica Link for > Excel, I was able to interact directly with the developer Not the case for me --- for several of the packages that I have purchased! The best source of help for me is this very active MathGroup which has so many Mathematica experts (e.g. Andrzej Kozlowski) that donate their time to help the non-experts like myself. --V. Stokes
