Well, here I am at my parents' place in Southwest Utah. It took a couple of days to figure out what settings I needed to toggle on my computer in order to get onto their wireless network, but I finally made it work.

I am trying out a Casio EX-Z120, which is a 7 megapixel camera with zoom and some video capability. I used GraphicConverter to shrink down a photo:
