  1. I absolutely love this idea. The fact that it is simple and fast launching is all the better. I think it will be best for those “Hey you want to go…” people who always show up when you just hit your groove. Oh, I’d love to go, but I have to wait for this to finish.

    Now I just have to come up with what “this” is so it doesn’t sound like a lie when they ask :)

  2. Looks like a good tool to fool away those pesky people :-) lol
