Scott - let me just say *THANKS!* - that is truly good news!  I'm a heavy user of these devices, and I sleep much better knowing there is some backing/help from the manufacturer.  

I have to ask - is there any work being done on a monitoring tool for these cards?  Forgive me if I'm overlooking one that already exists, but I couldn't find one that would work on these cards.  (Pointers are welcome!)
