RobotReplay...anyone used them before?

Anyone used a service called RobotReplay before? Seems to be a site

IxDA Membership Survey - Nov 2007

Hello IxDA!

The IxDA Board of Directors is about to hold our annual retreat, and
we’d like to get your input into some issues that we will be discussing.

financial/organizational commitment to IxDA, and how IxDA could
better support employment opportunities.
