    a shaky day in haiti fur shure.

    i keep hearing that they have no cell phone service. anyone have a spare 55 foot cell tower and equipment that they want to run down there on a boat ? i had an idea of putting the tower in a pick up truck hooked up like the tow truck are to the hitch and run the tower out of the bed on the beaches to give them temporary service. but that is all i have just an idea .fwiw.

    The military use emergency repeaters attached to tethered weather balloons. No idea why FEMA and such agencies don't have access to this circa 1940's technology. You can deploy a 100 foot cell tower in under 15 minutes anywhere you can find enough dry land to park a van.
    Until you can build a working general purpose reprogrammable computer out of basic components from radio shack, you are not fit to call yourself a programmer in my presence. This is cwhizard, signing off.

    Yes, just what I need two weeks after surviving an earthquake -- to be killed by a falling cellular transmitter from a discarded weather balloon.
    C programming resources:
    GNU C Function and Macro Index -- glibc reference manual
    The C Book -- nice online learner guide
    Current ISO draft standard
    CCAN -- new CPAN like open source library repository
    3 (different) GNU debugger tutorials: #1 -- #2 -- #3
    cpwiki -- our wiki on sourceforge

    if they made small packettes some dried food small bottle of water and dried milk and placed in plastic bag. that would be much better for air drop instead of heavy large boxes. and spread out drop area so no massive human pile up.
