Here is what I wrote down as well as my own comments for last night's meeting. If you disagree or want something corrected, please e-mail and I will update. 
Also, here is the link to my Google shared SATLUG folder where these meeting minutes reside as well as notes on SATCAL. If you can't get access, let me know and I will e-mail directly.

Meeting Minutes:
Beginning open discussion on FreeNAS, RAID, and Active Directory.

Segway to Jon’s Presentation on Serial Relay Board and Python Server on Linux.
Thank you Jon. 
Another relay board can be found here. $28. (My mistake, the default is serial/usb. Other options for WiFly, BlueTooth and XBee.)
P.S. If anyone is interested in ordering things from this company, please let me know. I would like to purchase one of the relays but I have never purchased from a China based company.
