This is the new and improved Web Remote Tools v4 completely re-written in ASP.net along with AJAX. Here is a screen shot with some stuff edited out:

Well, what a trip! First, my initial flight was cancelled from Owensboro, KY and I had to change to flying out of Nashville, TN.

So, ask members of the KCRSMUG user group what they thought...
