Ah, so I have not collected anything because I didn't use the auto 
submit button. It did not occur to me that this was necessary to 
actually save the data being collected.  So, without "auto submit" 
cellhunter is more like a passive display that shows the current cell 
info. Which is a useful mode, but I'd never guessed.

Sure, now I know how it works.

The offline mode is a bit unfinished, in that one has to run a script to 
upload. The "natural" way for me is to leave cellhunter running until
I can get a network connection. Then, pressing "submit" (or changing to 
online mode) ought to run that script and upload all that was collected 
while in offline mode. Or another button for running the upload script.
