I didn't mean you, Thiago. When I said "hosts" I meant the facility. I
heard from Intel that people directly responsible for infrastructure were
arguing against opening up the IP range.
Anyway, old news and I know that you know what's needed. ;)

I certainly don't mean to rely on Nokia; that was just a reference. Even
an ad hoc charging station would work. Something. Anything. Based on my

have really outstripped battery capabilities.
