Thanks Christian, we'll take a look.

By the way, anectotally, both Pedro and I are finding a good high level 
of name recognition for ITS as we talk to people here at LocWorld, which 
is pleasing. Also, we've found there's been a wide range of 
presentations here where we've been able to stand up and point out where 
ITS might help with existing problems.

cheers,
Dave
