Yes, I have the board and will try to put QI on my machines as well ..  
thanks for the tip!

This is exactly what I'd hoped to hear, and I appreciate the response  
- thank you!  Seems I will have something useful to do with my  
Freerunner after all .. one question: I'd like to set it up as a mini- 
ISP, allowing Wireless/Bluetooth connections to share the Internet  
over the Freerunner - is this possible yet, or is it still pretty much  
a difficult thing to set up?  I've been quite spoiled with my Android  
phone tethering for all my devices - if the Freerunner could do this  
easily enough (is there a GUI?) then I'd have a really interesting  
place to use it ..
