I understand that everyone has their own preferences regarding the techniques they like and the order they employ them. Recently I have been initially seeking more unusual solutions, and then consider the VH and VH+ steps if I do not find anything of interest. "Almost" steps such as AUR()s and ANP()s or an "almost" AIC (AAIC?) are my current favorite techniques.

Nothing. In fact it is the simplest solution. I just go for new and exotic methods. Roses to me...weeds to others. Very Happy
