For anyone that's interested in making a node or want to show their interest go to
www.nodedb.com and click on africa

basically if everyone who's interested can show were they are we can get the nodes up and running a lot faster than going by faith plus we will know were the mesh's weak points are and were we can better use someones node somewhere else.[|)]

All we have are nodes going up with people apparently so afraid of
Icasa that they don't want to list their contact details on
Nodedb. Another problem is that nobody is seemingly willing to
get a Telkom SAIX 64k line for R3450 VAT included per month and
resel bandwidth to their neighbours.

If you are really terrified of Icasa then please read the following

and try and get life ok?

yeh, well, I DID type up a nice long reply, but that went poof by mistake and no ways am I retyping that, but let me clear up some stuff.

The wireless network is NOT about the internet.
There are NO monthly costs involved.

Basically the network is for gaming, chatting, file swapping (legal files ofcourse! [}:)]) and well, whatever. You could even share the internet with a buddy over it I guess. Its also nice grabbing your graphics card drivers, or "whatever" from someone who already has it much faster than your adsl/sentech/<other overpriced broadband connection> could ever hope to achieve.

The actual node setup is ALOT cheaper than it used to be. You can be up and running for as little as R1000.

So those of you who are interested please put yourselves on nodedb. Im currently node #5 there, but moving at the end of the month (listed my new place as node #148) and hope once ive settled in there will be some ppl willing to link.
