Additional items: On Sunday on a whim I created a cantenna for the XO out of a can of Tinkertoys: [1]
I've accomplished most of what I set out to do this week, except for some of the Ethiopia work, which can wait until tomorrow. Unfortunately I was given a great deal more responsibility this week and will be breaking down those projects on the next week's page.

Also, I finally pushed Semantic MediaWiki and Semantic Forms through to our wiki. Francesca and I will be working on this next week, adding meta-data and forms to our badly structured wiki.

And Lastly there are a few personal projects that I accomplished or will be this morning with/for SJ while he's in Egypt.
