Hi Chris,

if you want some feedback you'd better post the input file with all  
the files necessary to run it in a .tgz.
This will make the life of the people much easier.

because you are asking for a non-periodic calculation.. If you want a  
fully periodic
have a look at:

maybe is useless.. but if QS is not trivial to be used.. QMMM is even  
less because requires knowledge
in both the MM and the QM module + another epsilon for QMMM itself..

depends which size you are increasing.. don't forget you have a QM  
cell and a MM cell..

if you don't post your input these question cannot be answered.
