Hey Christopher,

  I don’t know if you’re planning on showing anyone the HUD PLS site we did to anyone, but it is live and running.


  It went live on July 31 and in August the mapping server had 1.2 million hits.  (767K for tilecache and 467 for mapserver)  Tilecache had 68 errors in August while mapserver didn’t throw more than 2 (it wasn’t in the top 20 errors listed so I don’t actually know if it threw any at all).


  I suppose it may be old hat since the Where 2.0 conference, but you’re welcome to show that site.  Our government customer has been very happy with the site. 


  This is the site where we replaced an ArcIMS 9.1 site, beating out ArcGis Server 9.2 in performance, aesthetics and usability.  I had gotten permission to try a MapServer/OpenLayers version while the AGS group did theirs.  6 weeks before the due date (and 2 weeks after I started), we had a meeting to show off each groups progress.  We spent 10 minutes perusing the AGS stuff, and the next hour and a half *playing* with OpenLayers J  I knew we were going OL at that point and a demo to the customer the next day sealed it.


  We are in the process of moving this site to it’s final home but the above URL should work (it is after all a live site).  The new stack, with dedicated linux tile server and w2k3 map server is at and uses MS 5 for feeding the tile server (I’ve found a few bugs in MS 5 so parts are in MS 4).  This site hopefully will be the live site sometime tomorrow, but it could go up and down till then.


  Looking forward to some blog posts from the conference.
