I've not been posting because of other pressing needs.  But I can now 
announce that I may have some hardware available to test some things 
with, although these might be a little left of the field vs mainstream.

    * Recent MACBook Pro purchase.
    * Socket BlueTooth GPS
    * Working  on an AirCard of some sort for Wireless.  I can use My
      Treo650 in a pinch as a modem, still not my preference at this
      point though.

I read some way back that there was a WIKI setup for some of the item 
already written up, can someone point me to it easily?
