She would like people to take a look at ES&S's central tabulator software and start reporting on their impressions of it.

This is reportedly one generation back, but from what I'm told has significant similarities to the new stuff. I would appreciate it if you can provide me with feedback on your impressions after looking at it. You may want to Slashdot it or whatever.
