    This is really good list Jamie. Appreciate it.

    I wanted to have such a listing and I may try some of them in my course work this year.

    But right now I am using Tutehelp.com for almost a year and I found their services satisfactory and timely.

    With this list in mind I now have back-up! Thanks!
