Hi everyone,

I apologise for the wide distribution, but I would like to reach as many
Silk users as possible.  I have created a visualisation tool that aims to
help Silk users evaluate output files that are in Alignment format:


This project is the basis for an MSc thesis, which I am currently working

I have also created a brief survey and questionnaire related to Silk and the
visualisations, in order to help me perform an analysis of the tool:

   - Survey on usage of the Silk
   - Questionnaire on Silk visualisations<http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/KZ5J76D>

Could I please ask you to take a few minutes and complete the survey and
questionnaire?  Both contain only about 10 questions each.

I would like to offer up to five *€20 Amazon vouchers* for people willing to
complete the questionnaire.  If you are interested and have large Alignment
files (over 1 MB), I would urge you to run the application on your computer..
***  (I would send you a WAR file or NetBeans project and gladly help you
get set up - would only take 5 - 10 minutes - please contact me).

The information from the survey and questionnaire is intended solely for my
thesis.  IP addresses are not stored in the survey/questionnaire results.
 Upon completion, you would have a chance to see the overall results, but
any textual input is omitted.

Thank you, and kind regards,

Troy Giunipero

*** One limitation with the online demo is that it is hosted on Google App
Engine, which places a time restriction ( ~30 seconds ) on the request.
 Therefore, it will simply time-out when large files are being parsed, and
return a status 500 message.  The application itself is capable of parsing
large files, e.g., two 5 MB files take approximately 3.5 minutes on a 2.4
GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor with 4 GB of memory.
