     63We've been working on a couple different projects for the past few days. The biggest is v3.py, which is going to lead the robot to the access point with high confidence. A second project is generating a map of signal strength vs. position using as many nodes on the grid as possible. The third thing I've been doing is playing around with Makefiles and g++, which are slowly beginning to demystify.

     65One important observation I have made is that the ERSP sample code does not always compile with g++-4.1 (It spits out an "extra qualification error".

We need to change the CXX flag in each Makefile to g++-3.3, but once this is done the code compiles and runs.
