Finally got my network running pretty well by installing pre-RC5 OpenWRT software on the v2.2 and older routers, except for maybe needing RC2 on the master router. I really ought to try pre-RC5 on it again, maybe I didn't give it enough time last time to establish a WDS link. One thing for sure, the WRT54G v4 won't enter into a WDS session with the older routers. I've reported it to the guys on the #openwrt channel at irc.freenode.net. Having a hard time convincing people at City of the Sun that a local network can be useful without internet access. Maybe they're right, but I don't believe it. Local sharing of information is the future. I just know it.

My neighbor's dog killed a rabbit yesterday and we're eating rabbit stew. It's so goddamned tough and not much flavor, though. Also paid $80 to a local rancher who's going to sell me some "clean" beef, no antibiotics nor hormones. It's grain fed, however, so not ideal. I'd rather have range-fed if I could find it for a reasonable price.
