Cool! I have not given it a test drive yet, but I look forward to using it.

I was looking forward to getting my hands on the OSIS texts today, but
nothing has been posted yet.

I did not make it to SBL in  Toronto this year, so I did not get a copy of
the CD they distributed with 300 OSIS texts. Does anyone know if an iso is
hiding on the server somewhere?

by grace alone,
