As disclosed in prior quarters, Wave’s software license upgrade sales are recorded as deferred revenue and recognized generally over a 365-day period.  As a result of this treatment and the additional growth in Wave’s license upgrades during Q4 2008 (net of revenue recognized), deferred revenue increased 41% or $433,000 to $1,484,000 at December 31, 2008, compared with the deferred revenue of $1,051,000 at September 30, 2008.  For the full year of 2008, deferred revenue grew over 400% to $1,484,000 from deferred revenue of $289,000 at December 31, 2007.
