The stuff I want to do is all directly Noisebridge-related and 
specifically for the Noisebridge android app.  I can generate an iphone 
app as soon as we can get an iphone developer license.

I'd like to keep whatever I do on the official noisebridge servers so 
that people feel more comfortable using it.  I don't think people would 
feel good about using a Noisebridge android/iphone app if it was getting 
its data from some weird unknown server.

Plus, there's no point in paying for another server when our current 
webserver (insofar as i know) isn't doing anything besides running 
mediawiki.
