  Log:
  New case study.  Added after some excited poking from Tetsuya.  :-)  It may not be pushed
to the website immediately however.  Need to poke Andy to get his nightly build going again.
 Either that or just do one myself.

  -          A number of people are using POI for a variety of purposes.  As with
  -          any new API or technology, the first question people generally ask
  -          is not "how can I" but rather "Who else is doing what I'm about to
  -          do?"  This is understandable with the abysmal success rate in the
  -          software business.  These case statements are meant to help create
  -          confidence and understanding.

  -          We are actively seeking case studies for this page (after all it
  -          just started).  Andy Oliver (acoliver at apache dot org) has
  -          agreed to have a few T-Shirts printed with the POI logo (once its
  -          chosen) for the first
  -          few best submissions.  To submit a case study, either

  -          project's <link href="http://jakarta.apache.org/poi/hssf">
  -          HSSF</link> API.  The system is based on Oracle JServer and

  -        <p>
  -Bit Tracker (http://www.bittracker.com) is the world's first and only web-based drill bit
tracking system to manage your company's critical bit information and use that data to its
full potential. It manages all bit related data, including their usage, locations, how they
were used, and results such as rate of penetration and dull grade after use.  This data needs
to be available in Excel format for backwards compatibility and other uses in the industry.
 After using CSV and HTML formats, we needed something better for creating the spreadsheets
and POI is the answer.  It works great and was easy to implement.  Kudos to the POI team.

  -      <p>
  -      Edwards and Kelcey Technology (http://www.ekcorp.com/) developed a
  -      Facility
  -      Managament and Maintenance System for the Telecommunications industry
  -      based
  -      on Turbine and Velocity. Originally the invoicing was done with a simple
  -      CVS
  -      sheet which was then marked up by accounts and customized for each client.
  -      As growth has been consistent with the application, the requirement for
  -      invoices that need not be touched by hand increased. POI provided the
  -      solution to this issue, integrating easily and transparently into the
  -      system. POI HSSF was used to create the invoices directly from the server
  -      in
  -      Excel 97 format and now services over 150 unique invoices per month.
