Subject Re: Bloodhound online demos

I think running demos on our main VM may not be appropriate but I gather 
it should be possible to get a VM for demoing use. I assume that we are 
all happy with this part. I don't know if there will be a limit to the 
number of demos we should run yet.

There is a reasonable chance these will be kept up to date if they are also useful for the
development and testing processes.
