Some people say if you run a receive-only iGate, you are breaking the network by obstructing two-way messaging and even being a 'jerk'. Other people say that this doesn't happen because if there are transmitting iGates present, additional receive-only iGates can only improve messaging performance.
Wednesday, 21st August 2019: Going off-grid
The iGate is being moved to a new location nearer the M5. It will be powered by solar energy and connected to the internet via a wireless modem. Longer term, we plan to put up a much bigger antenna. Hopefully the iGate will be back next week.
