Thanks Tom, that is great news.
When would be your expected launch date? I'd like to have a press 
release ready to send as soon as you have Live GIS image ready to view.

I'm guessing that it will probably a day or two to try out and fix any 
glitches, then a few days on QA. Earliest would be a week from now, and 
probably two weeks would be better?

The earlier we can get a press release out, the more people we are 
likely to attract to the conference. I'd love to put a release out on 
Monday 12 October, but Friday 15 October might be more realistic. What 
are your thoughts?
