Yes, I am interested in anything that you can send me.  Email is fine, but
use whatever is most convenient for you:

I'm starting my dissertation work here, modeling southern pine beetle 
infestations/outbreaks/etc and the USDA Forest Service has historical
data on beetle populations and spatial dispersions going back to 1987 for
the Oconee National Forest, but it's on a PC under Arc/INFO.  They're real 
cooperative; they've even offered me unlimited access to the system so that
I can do the work at their site, but that's a hassle I'd rather avoid.  
Besides, I want to build a kriging utility and need to be able to hack the
GIS, so GRASS is ideal.

Thanks for ANY help you can give me!
