UUGI detroit day 2

Iblink update (do you know what an iblink is?)

SD will continue development of the iBistro iLink product as a PAC. this reassured a lot of folks, me included. Long story.
nice new features announced:
my account and renew my items same page
holds delivery by mail option
keep "all on this page"
online user registration, really, no work-around!
no hold button if no copies are holdable (!) yay!!
standard CSS

Automated calling update

new language field in user account will allow calls to be made in native language
new improved text to voice engines. yay again!

Ibistro customization

I got enough info to klug code to remove the annoying display stating items are "available in ONORDER"
this will be high on the to do list

other nifty stuff some cool guys are doing:

text call number to my phone from the catalog result
what's new selection page with nice variables (branch, format timeline...)
good stats on lib value based on user count checkout count and comparing local use to system use.
integrating google booksearch content API to opac.

having fun...
