dear hugh,

i use stata for unix on a server at my university, and it wll give me as
much as 4.077 gigabites.  i'm not sure how much of that is b/c the server
is a more powerful computer & how much is b/c unix is a faster operating
system.  either way, i'd recommend finding a university server (or
something comparable).

another approach that i try occasionally is to perform the most
computationally intensive operations in SAS for windows.  at a given level
of computing power, SAS can handle some large datasets that stata can't
b/c SAS manipulates the data observation-by-observation rather than
loading the whole dataset in at once.
