Hi. This is Dave Zwang for WhatTheyThink. I’m here at Drupa. It's the first day; the opening day. Although, it seems like I've been here for a week already. We actually started this whole event with a wonderful showing from Benny Landa and his new nanotechnology printing and actually there's an article in the paper today, so you should take a look it. But putting all that aside, there's a lot of other things to see as well. There's – not just in the way of inkjet – although inkjet of course is probably the big talk. B2 Inkjet, B2 – to be or not to be – this is basically one of the questions. Actually I was at a Xerox press conference and someone asked Xerox why aren't – don’t they feel somewhat out of the picture for not introducing a B2, and of course they had wonderful answers that were – all made perfect sense and they introduced two new presses; a new inkjet as well as a new igen to help address some of the concerns of the marketplace. So, not a problem.
I expect to see a lot more stuff over the next few days and I'm sure you'll hear from many other people besides me about how exciting it all is. But I think that between all of the WhatTheyThink correspondents that are out here pounding the pavements in Dusseldorf you'll probably get a feel that what is going on here. So thanks very much, and have a great show.
