That reminds me, a talk I give next month is about work that happened 
through MathGroup.

The main person behind the method was a fellow from Colombia named 
Juergen Tischer, who was active in MathGroup around 1998-9. He was, in 
my opinion, quite adept at using Mathematica to do math.

In point of fact, a fair amount of the more interesting computations I 
have encountered came about through MathGroup interactions. At least 
three problems I discussed in our 2006 Tech Conference came from MathGroup.

Anyway, I'll add my voice of thanks, and best wishes down what I hope 
will be a long road.
