I'll take a look at this today too.

I have the rest of this week off, and I'd like to spend most of it

things that need to get done are useful.

connect through there and get a lease in a while. I still need to

There's no lack of APs around here (though we do have a lack of 48VDC
supplies), so it's definitely something I could setup.
