I agree Phil.  I think the end is in sight now.  The engine is a good 
example because it shows flash capabilities.  I can redo the startup

Let's try to push it out by the weekend.

Perhaps someone can copy video and pub links from the Oracle or HPI pages.

Perhaps Antero could add a short section on Lively for QT with link
