Hi Scott,

My apologies, I meant Lucid instead of Hardy(I was discussing something
about hardy at the time and my mind messed up) so a Lucid HVM is exactly
what I'm looking forward to, it's kind of sad to know HVM are restricted, I
will ask EC2 support to see if I can be able to create HVM images, in the
meantime I'm really happy and grateful that you will be releasing a daily
Lucid HVM, really, thank you! if there's something I can help with please
let me know.
