It is a fab product, but only if you have a root server. I have bought
and installed it on the CSS table gallery
http://icant.co.uk/csstablegallery/ and got told off by my web host,
as the constant database writing (ever second - the first day I had
41000 hits) maxed out the server 100%.

I posted on the support forum:
http://haveamint.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=191 and got zilch as an
answer so far. This makes me wonder why I spent the money...
