Confused by the speed and speed in knots - was the rig moving?

The code was developed while I was going down I-35 between Dallas and Austin. It was a sweet setup, I had my iPad logged into the radio console over SSH on a mount and my Macbook Pro running my Ubuntu development environment inside Parallels and the SmartSDR-Windows client running inside of Windows in Parallels under OSX.

Contrary to what you may hear, I was not driving at the time.

Well obviously you weren't the one driving if you were only doing 61 kts. :P
