The longer VID 1.3 takes the more interested in your efforts I become! ;)
Drop a line when the new site goes live and I'll try and give it a spin
(in addition to providing useful feedback).

I'm currently using VID to scroll a 1,000,000 row query result table ...
it takes about 90 seconds to format and display the data [in a text-list]
.... I'm curious to see how glayout performs. ;)

Yep, and then there's testing ...
One useful technique I find with documentation is a "Quick Start" guide of
some sort which gives the fewest possible steps to get "something"
working. It's often enough to convince me [at least] to invest the time
and effort into wading through 100's of pages of documentation *if* I can
see the value demonstrated in a paragrapgh or two. Just an idea. ;)
