What we're working on now:

   *We have two working nodes at current, running through a Linode we can share access to for anyone who wants to experiment.
   *Fake captive portals on the exit nodes to welcome users to the mesh.
   *If disconnected from the Internet, can connect to the unique address of different nodes

   *Running BMX6 to connect between the nodes
