Intermediates via eVDO

The eVDO intermediates via web services actually worked quite smoothly, and they made air quite a bit. It really was held together with bailing wire and chewing gum, as Bruce told me he was right on the edge of eVDO coverage and his POST updates timed out about 50% of the time. The internet coverage here in the TV truck sucked too, so my GETs were timing out about 25% of the time too. Nonetheless, it was great information and the director used the hell out of it. Check for the "12K Time Check" graphic, for example, in the final segment with Millar's and Leipheimer's intermediate time.
