We are in an interesting situation. Our call for hardware for Byzantium was
just laptops and USB keys, but we're also extending an existing Commotion

that has stable power and internet. Byzantium works without the special
equipment, but as we said in our talk, long range links must be improvised
on a case by case basis.
