Enjoying poking at this but having problems getting the plug to connect to my wifi. What's the command line incantation to

a) get it to connect to my normal router
b) get it to have a dhcp address

I've tried editing /etc/config/network and so forth but so far no joy.

I want to avoid installing the App, and have root shell.

Another news story about the film from "It's OK to be Smart." 

Great to see it getting more publicity. About half the funding seems to be from other sites publishing the story, so if you have a blog or know people in the news business, I'm free for interviews. I'll even supply cute penguin photos to use...

Antz Powell has made a fantastic film based partly on timelapse sequences gathered over ten years working in Antarctica. I've seen an early version and it took my breath away.
A visually stunning chronicle of what it is like to live in Antarctica for a whole year from the point of view of the everyday workers.

IF NOT "SHOOT WOMAN" THEN "WORLD FALLS TO SERFDOM";

Relapsing reformed physicist
Introduction
I'm Alex Gough, a relapsing reformed physicist. I'm currently studying a PhD in Sea Ice Physics at the University of Otago in Dunedin, New Zealand. This includes components of fieldwork at Scott Base on McMurdo Sound, Antarctica. My research interests cover the winter growth of sea ice and the formation and properties of the platelet layer in the vicinity of an ice shelf.

I am also a strong programmer, being especially involved in the Perl community.
