Hi Cody,

I think it is a great idea and would make most of our lives easier when we
have to introduce LDP to people who ask what it is all about :)

One suggestion though, if you can script in such a way that with the same
effort you could produce a shorter version of the same which would be like
2 ~ 3 mins that would be great too.

Best Regards,
