yeah my friends laugh at me ... i'm always staring at whatever is on the roof of buildings we pass by. yesterday i saw this big white stick on a far away building i thought might be an antenna and got ribbed by my passenger when it turned out to be a white flagpole :rolleyes:

Yeah, my GF has described it as an antenna fetish. I stare at anything remotely antenna like and often theorize on what they're used for. There is so much wireless infrastructure, and it's just so cool to look at. :)

Stumbler 12 Step Program:

1) Sell your laptop or iPAQ

2) Learn about EIA/TIA 568 Standard

3) Wire your house w/ Gigabit Ethernet

4) Pay for Cable Modem

5) Post all of your wireless & computer security books on half.com for 5 cents a copy

6) Reintroduce yourself with your spouse or significant other

7) Make ammends for all those "late night trips to the 7-11" that seemed to last for 5 hours, even though it's just down the block.

8) Send thank you cards to all of the net & sys admins who didn't prosecute.

9) Shim your refridgerator or washingmachine with your wi/fi card

10) Use your $300.00 yagi as a tomato plant cage

11) Actually use your copy of Mappoint for planning a trip...

12) Go to Vegas as a religious pilgrim, to show the old folks that gambling is a sin...

Yeah, they're lame, but hey... I was in a pinch

Strange that you should ask ....

There's a guy setting up a WISP within LOS of my office - and last Monday, I was standing at the top of the stairs thinking that he'd increased the height of his tower - I used to have to go one flight further up to see it - and the receptionist couldn't figure out what I was looking at - so I showed her.

And do you know what she asked ....
