      Ed, thank you very much for these leads. Yes: the DM industry seems a
      promising place to start, although one of the things which amuses me is to
      encounter companies who are extremely sophisticated in their off-line
      analysis and mine there CRM systems like mad, but do almost nothing with
      their web data!

      Thanks again. I'll pass the leads on.

      Tim
