While trying to get my FUNcube and Ezcap dongles to work with BorIP I
ran across something that surprised me. After getting BorIP to work
with both dongles I went back and took another look at the
introductory video for BorIP. I have always assumed that that people
in general were not interested in any thing complex like satellite
communications because they were too busy  tweeting, playing Angry
Birds or standing in line waiting to buy a new iPhone. Much to my
surprise I found that there were over 58,000 views of the video. That
was about 57,990 more than I expected. I believe there are a lot more
tech savvy people out there than I ever imagined which offers the
possibility of a brighter future for our hobby.

BTW - BorIP works like a champ with both the FUNcube and Ezcap
modules. Very nice system.

BorIP is no where near as difficult to set up as you might expect
after watching the video.
