This looks awesome! I'm in.

I've been thinking about Arduino for a while now, but have yet to get a
chance to do much experimenting. I really want to figure out if there's a
way can build an inexpensive trail camera to photograph wildlife around a
family cottage, and this seems like a likely platform to build upon.

Thanks,
Robbie
