Hi Mike,

OSP is the Oligo Selection Program by LaDeana Hillier and P. Green of 
Washington Uni. St Louis.  It's free but you have to sign a licence 
agreement beforehand.  LaDeana's email address is - lfw at elegans.wustl.edu. 
or by regular mail - 

 Washington University Medical School
 Department of Genetics
 Box 8232
 4566 Scott
 St Louis, MO 63110 USA

I've used it and am quite satisfied with the results; I think it is heavily 
used for selection of sequencing primers for the nematode sequencing project 
and selection of PCR primers for YAC/STS human genome project so its 
credentials are quite good :)

Hope this helps.
