> How many people here can do a little C coding?

I can and I'd love to help.  The first thing I want to work on is 
getting it running on the WRT54GS.  The second is NoCatSplash.  I have 
some Perl skills, too, so that might be a good fit (assuming there is 
still some porting to do from NoCatAuth).  Of course, I've just 
downloaded the source code and joined the mailing list (and have work 
commitments like you), so it is going to take me a little bit to get up 
to speed.  My C and Perl skills are a bit rusty, but this will be a 
great opportunity to sharpen them up.

That said, I just would like to say "Thank you."  This project is 
amazing, and it has so much potential.  Thank you for your work in 
getting it up and going, and thank you for sharing it with everyone.  
I'm going to be in Portland Sunday and Monday and I'd love to buy you 
guys a beer.
