Excellent progress!

Christy has soldered up an opentracker kit and cables, and we
basically have end-to-end connectivity from GPS all the way down to
radio antenna. Further progress needs a real serial port to upgrade
firmware on the GPS and configure the opentracker.

Andrew has written a chunk of Android code for the G1, including not
only augmenting sensor logging with network state but also the really
critical piece, namely broadcasting GPS location via SMS.

Blake volunteered his CHDK-compatible camera (that has been up to the
edge of space once already) to rescue the sadly over-modern SD400
situation.

We're in pretty good shape for the weekend - and Modesto weather
forecasts say that Sunday will be mostly sunny.
