Midas Networks Donates Server

Midas Networks donated a hosted server for use by the project. This is greatly appreciated. This server will be the primary application server for NewI\O.

Huge Success!

I travelled up to Dallas with my friends Darron and Jason (road trip!) and we presented NewI\O to 42 people. The setup was plain, but initmate. There were even 2 labrador retrievers running around, including one chocolate lab puppy that was a doll.

It was the largest crowd that I ever have had a chance to present to. Most everyone got it. I think we definetly had the wow factor. I believe that I picked up 2 new developers for the project. A major success.
