I'm a rank newbie, showed up for my first PTP meeting July 23. Learn one, do one, teach one --- I'm still on step 1.

I don't have a node running yet. I have a household connection to Comcast cable (I can't get DSL here). Multiple machines running Redhat Linux 7.3 through 9.0, one Sun Ultra running Solaris 9.

My portable is a Thinkpad T30 1.8GHz with a Cisco Aironet 350 MiniPCI, not yet activated. The machine is running Redhat 9.0 with an updated kernel, 2.4.20-13.9 with some mods for Win4lin and some EE CAD dongles. I could use some help getting the Cisco running (as of July 23, 2003).

I have a Siemens Speedstream Wireless DSL/Cable Router, SS2624, which I have fired up and not yet configured. It is a 20mW beasty, probably not good enough for a PTP node (and there's that pesky Comcast limitation, too). I'll fiddle with the internal network, WEP'ed, then figure out some way to meet Comcast's restrictions and still serve the community.

I am located near Beaverton-Hillsdale Highway and Jamieson. I could be throwing bits at the local businesses (Mcdonalds, Round Table Pizza, Bimart, KFC, many others) if there was some way to pay for a business connection to Comcast.

I am a mixed-signal integrated circuit design consultant. http://www.kl-ic.com is my consulting business. When I am not consulting, I fiddle with a web page at http://www.keithl.com .
