I'm interested in helping setup a free wireless network, I live in 
Cranston in the SE.  I am a complete newbie about such things but am 
willing to learn new things.  I don't know anything about the hardware 
or software or whats involved but will gladly participate in any kind of 
wireless mesh/repeater network .... thing. :)  It sounds like fun.

I'm just having obscure grandiose visions of playing MP games with tons 
of other people wirelessly and not using the internet and not on the 
same LAN.
