G'Day Deano,

Actually we use Interchange as a SQL management tool, and search engine.

That list site I wrote is a directory service for churches. You can all find it 
at http://www.alocalchurch.com...

On January 19th 125,000 invitations go out to churches accross North America to 
list with us for free...

When they buy purcahse a full site from us they get a 75+ page site that they 
can totally edit every part of, including 12 different header images and 
64 different control bar images from a highly specialized set of editor pages. 
All of the 76 different images are also available in 4 color sets.

The next version will allow people to select background images for the main page 
and header region combined, as well as the control bar area.

I have also just been approached to re-create a news/editorial service using 
Interchange for an internation company.

Interchange makes managing/writing multi-destinational front ends for SQL 
databases a snap. The power in increadable. I myself have even chose it over
