RE: [irlp-embedded] Scheduler
That would be really cool and I am sure we could get John Maxwell N0WBW with Red Rocks Data center host the server and bandwidth but this will require someone who actually knows how to implement it. I will talk with John or if you want to host it that would be great as well.

The WX scripts I wrote require that PERL be installed; hence, will not
work on an embedded node because PERL is too big to be installed on
such a system. Because it is such a low priority for me, I've never
bother trying to convert to C to be compiled to a binary. I have
enough systems running that I can have a server somewhere do the WX
script and make the .ul file available for pickup as necessary.
