    As most of you know, I pilfered Boots away from the old company he was working at to come work with me here in Bedford at the beginning of the summer. We've been working on some pretty cool shit, and it's been a hell of a long haul getting all the kinks worked out (sorry for stealing your man, twink!).

    Anyway, yesterday was a huge day for us as we released our first public beta of the software we've been killing ourselves to get ready. Boots was a huge part of getting things ready since joining so this is my public/RC thanks to him!

    As a bit of self promotion.. if you work in any area of the creative design industry, take a gander at what we've created:

    I know there are a number of you here who work in the area, so check it out and see what Boots has been up to.. OSX available now, Windows will be ready next week.

    It's been a pleasure mocking your tea drinking, too.

    Windows next week. We were really close to releasing on both platforms at once, but encountered a couple of show stoppers on Windows we knew had to be cleaned up before release. We have solutions to both in hand now, and we just need to ensure proper QA on the load before we release it to the public.

    I meant to send you an email yesterday - let me know whatcha think!

    I'm quite surprised at the use a lot of photographers are getting out of it - I honestly wasn't sure it would be there, but it seems to be.

    :bigup:

    :lol: We're still figuring it all out!
