Thanks for sharing the link to the recording of your presentation. I learned a few things.  :)

Glad Aruba is useful for more than mapping expensive holiday travels! :P

Having a better clue at what you do with METAL was really useful.

Me too! I watched the whole video. Great! :)

I didn't expect that the algorithms on HDX are so close to what I'm faced to with my professional work.

Aruba is a favorite for several reasons.

1) early alphabetically in lists
2) nice and small graph
3) mostly short and simple vertex labels
4) oriented more N-S to fit between the other panels in the window
5) has a really short edge you can't see until you zoom in (or notice what you think is incorrect behavior by your algorithm)

Glad some of you are enjoying the video!

Minor nitpick on Slide 11 of Jim's presentation:  Minnesotan's call state (and US) highway routes "Highway xx"...😊

(not that I imagine the bulk of your attendees were from the Upper Midwest...)
