last night was incredible difficult, the camera kept dropping frames and then wouldn't come back online unless I unplugged it and restarted. dont know why, but it was a huge pisser. I did get the ethernet connection up and rolling and tracking was better than ever.

I need more time to edit, got to work now. Clear skies homies.
