Hi Jack.....

Thanks for the comments.  As you know, they stated on their web site that an 
update was scheduled for Aug/Sep of 2008.  Then in November, it was updated 
to "this Fall" (08),and said beta testing had started.  In January 2009 they 
stated the beta for the Orion II was tested and completed but would not be 
released until the Orion update was completed and beta on it started on  Jan 
19 2009.

I did write a very courteous letter to the President (Jack).  I included my 
email address and phone number.  This was sent months ago.......no reply
