Update on Wiki: Help Wanted
As mentioned last week, we were having some trouble with the wiki and have decided to migrate to a new (and much better) wiki platform which is based on the widely-used MediaWiki software . We are working on manually moving all of the content from the old wiki to the new. The new wiki will be permanently located at this address. Moving the wiki is a slow and tedious process, and we apologize that it’s taking so long!
If any members have some time to help, please PM svetius and we will give you the tools necessary to lend a hand. The page formatting between the old wiki and new wiki is very different, so copying pages is not simple. Members who already know (or are willing to learn) MediaWiki syntax would be greatly appreciated.

However, each area of technology has its limitations on what it can do and how far it can expand. For satellite technology,...
