Future node near downtown

Hi, I have an interest in setting up a node in Sacramento. Have an order into Amazon for an airRouter. Please feel free to contact me if you are in the area and also interested.

All seems to be working on the basic node. Now looking into MeshChat.

Install MeshChat on a Raspberry Pi.  You get action script capabilities, TONS of storage, and you don't drag down a node by doing non-routing related things.

I've got MeshChat on the router as a first step, seems to work (I can send messages to myself).

I've got MeshChat loaded on a pi as well.  Question...can I run the pi headless, connected by ethernet cable into an AirRouter port? Or do you connect a screen and keyboard to the pi, then ethernet to the AirRouter, and launch a browser on the pi?

i run headless and just SSH to the pi.
connect the pi as you said, then, access meshchat at:   http://<your_pi_mesh_address>/meshchat   (or similar)
