This was a pretty interesting little webpage. I really wish ther ewas a good and extensive book on the nonmammalian synapsids. How much do you think it would cost to bribe Darren Naish to write it? ;)

I have tried pitching book ideas on Palaeozoic therapsids. Companies just aren't interested: it has to have the word 'dinosaur' in the title. If you have enough bandwidth I can try sending you the powerpoint show on non-mammalian synapsids which I use for teaching.

Oh yeah, but if a bribe is being offered, a few thousand ££ would do it.

1. Bandwidth is not an issue. I work at NERSC ( Very shortly tens of teraflops of computational cycles won't be a problem. Send away.

2. I'll get back to you on the bribe. I'm definitely not saying no, just that it might have to wait a bit. How many few thousands of sterling are we talking? ;)
