Hey all...

   A few days away from completing a Windows (32bit) app and accompanying ActiveX control for time zone stuff

   Need some testers to trash it for me.  Please send me an email (andre-tascha.lamme at ironriver.com) if interested.  (Let me know if you want the control or the app)

   Basic specs on the app/ActiveX:

   - Have approximately 28,000 locations (cities, etc.) 
   - Each location is based on a Region (e.g. Asia), Country (ISO3166-1) and a Country's regional info (ISO3166-2) if applicable.  Each location has GMTOffset and standard DST info (if observes, the dates and amounts of offset).
   - In the app, one can browse or search through locations and add them to actives (i.e. for display).
   - Can add new locations (still debating whether or not I want to deal with allowing folks to send me their additions).
   - Can add people identifiers and assign them to existing locations.  (Allows you to see what time it is where "Aunt Mathilda" is, rather than just generic "Providence, Rhode Island").
   - Can set alarms/reminders to go off as of the specified time for a target location (i.e. Aunt Mathilda wants you to call her at 15:00 her time)
   - Any other suggestions?
