He’s using DSLreports for the quality testing, which is always a good sign.  After turning off my webcache, I get a nice “A” grade over here while running through my custom Cake setup, and a big fat “F” grade with Cake turned off.  Just as it should be, given my connection.

With the webcache left on, though, I just get errors, not results.  That might be something to get fixed.

I think we can rally around this device, if it works as well as advertised (and it should).  I know of a handful of well-placed people who could potentially try out and endorse it, but I would like to see some of us trying it out before I involve them.
