We made it safely down here on our Southern Fried tour and all is going well. We have met with .NET user groups here Huntsville, Birmingham, Montgomery and the rain soaked Mobile (8 inches of rain yesterday). Hopefully this rain is on its way to Raleigh, North Carolina, because we need it there. We are having a great time presenting FarPoint Spread and showing how this unlocks their 'grid applications'. There has been a lot of good feedback. One of the guys in Birmingham blogged about us (with a picture) yesterday. We are off to Baton Rouge this (Friday) morning and will be flying home tomorrow.

Gridlocked in your development efforts?

and true way of presenting data. But it's boring too. What could you create if you could develop the UI at the cell level?
