I just put in an order for 3.

Think we could convince City Hall to let us put one, or a few, up on the tower at the corner of Kent and Queen?

do you use the monetize feature? I haven’t seen any screenshots of that page from the dashboard yet and I was wondering what it does. Do users hit a splash page before they get online?

I’ve applied for, and have been granted access to the “monetize” feature, but I haven’t rolled it out. I *have*, however, added a “splash page” for the current (free) access, which is quite configurable, and is smart enough to redirect web browsers, but not other traffic (at your option) so, for example, people can check email without having to see the splash.
