RE: Policy on serving JResultsClient from our servers?

Guy -
This was a one time thing that I asked Mike to research for me.  It was only a test and not being offered as something that we would be making as an offering to counties.  At least not in the near future.  This is NOT available for our customers consumption and not something that is on the table for sales.

  Is this something that we'll offer to do for our clients?  Is this standard support, part of maintenance, or an extra charge?

  BTW, Dmitry has been working on a JResultClient that can pull results from a Linux based Web server.  Let us know if anyone needs it.

Guy, We used Global's HTTP site. Mike Brown set it up for us. It worked very
well. The media people were all happy.  Thanks for your assistance.
