Abstract                : Walter is an excellent demo tool.
                          It is an animated graphical display that shows 
                          distributed objects or nodes and the traffic between them.
                          It works from log files, and these can be either 
                          generated by a real system or simply fabricated.
                          Walter uses a rather elaborate rule-based system to 
                          interpret the log files.
                          A rule-set must be developed for the given application.
                          The demo itself is very clean though, using a virtual 
                          video remote controller.
