I just set up my new hardware and it seems to be working fine. However I did notice something that could be really useful for people that are away from an internet connection. A news feed from the othernet forums. This would let people know if there are any software updates available, known bugs, planned network outages, etc. Basically all the knowledge in the forums could be accessible to everyone using othernet. I already looked into this a little and the forums already have rss capabilities built in.
This would have been useful when L band went down. I spent a week trying to get that thing working.
