Hi Adam -

Thanks for the email - and the idea.  Something like this had been floating
around in the back of my head for some time, but I hadn't acted on it yet.
I'm in the middle of a desert for a few more days, but have bookmarked this
to help contribute to when I return.  (Unfortunately this is our first
experiment with solar-powered iphones, and we didn't make an array
sufficient to power ours for more than a few more minutes for the day.)

Best,
KG
