many thanks, mitch. 

i'll be in SF on tuesday meeting with 
someone at 6 PM, so i suggest somewhere 
in SF, of course: a couple of groups use 
the Metreon food court (fourth and  <------ 
mission), so i'm throwing that as my 
suggestion (easy fwy access). 

   i have a little bit of hardware and 
software hacking skills (own a couple 
of o'scopes, lots of meters, soldering 
equipment, can code a little bit, mainly 
can screw things up in unique ways). 
   the camera project idea is that it 
sits on a battery and when there's 
motion goes into a loop of clicking 
every couple of seconds and storing 
the image. big picture: camera connected 
to computer with storage, the entire 
system should be v. low power so's to 
work on the battery for at least two 
weeks, battery must be small but can 
be lots of small battery packages in
