Winter is coming, meaning like 6 months of no screwing around, so putting it here for when it's on hold. I'm not joking when I say I began this project having literally no idea what I was getting into. A month later, this is still the case.

I'm more than partway there, but I'm pretty sure the part I'm sure I'm partway to isn't as much part as I'm sure it is. I've already got a ton lined up to take care of this winter, plenty more I'd LIKE to take care of this winter, and the ever-present threat of failure if I don't make it out to my self-imposed deadline of March's NASA trackday at VIR.
