I don't know what we could achieve at a meeting today. We have the
design down, I think. I suggest we postpone until next week, setting two
goals: Zach will post the design to the list. I will bring a stack of
autoconfigurable CDs suitable for a demo, or (more likely) buggy CDs
and a list of bugs.

Tonight I am concentrating on setting up my development environment
so that I can test and debug the autoconfigure code I have already

I suggest a few goals in addition to getting our software working:

  make an appointment with a radio researcher at the university to
   talk to us about radio propagation and antennas design

  find a student in EE to whom our project appeals and who would
   like to build antennas for a community network

  produce a hardware wish-list combining parts on the market and
   parts no one sells yet (like a power-adjustable 802.11 card with
   open-source firmware)

  organize one or two highly-visible "802.11 field days," where we
   set up ad hoc networks in and around Champaign-Urbana and run some
   engaging application; for guaranteed exposure, at least one field
   day should coincide with a local event such as the Sweetcorn Festival
