Thanks for the update Kit. FYI, I notice that -fitstat- is in the top 25. People should know that the version of -fitstat- on SSC is not the most current version (indeed, the SSC version is more than 10 years old). Long and Freese keep the most current version of -fitstat- (along with various other routines which have older versions available on SSC) on Long's personal website. Do -findit spost9- to get the most up to date version. I've seen several people have problems because they were using old versions of Long and Freese software. When in doubt, I usually assume SSC has the most current version of software, but Long and Freese's routines are a noteworthy exception.
