Start working on that 'shift' key as well.

Sorry but I was typing that on my old laptop and its shift key doesn't work.
Way to many years of hitting it. Unless I press down so hard that I might break the laptop it wont work.

That's why keyboards have a backup shift key (read 2). ;)

Oh yeah, and my keyboard doesn't work because there is no wire connecting it to the computer. ;)

Come on, Thorn said it once already and you broke his balls, and now you're going back to the same habits and trying to tell me its a broken shift key?
Thorn and the other guys here at NS are here to help, and you aren't even following the basic rules. I'm not saying I follow all of them, or that everyone else does, but you could at least pretend you do for a while. ;)

For those of you who use Kismet, is there anyway I can get a graph showing dbi as I adjust my directional antenna in order to get the best reception? I am using the Alfa Alfa AWUS036H which is very popular but still not working with Network Stumbler. I did see one picture showing it working, but no idea how the hell he or she did it. I get "No Wireless Adapter Found" message at the bottom when I attempt it.

Crap. Even "Stabil" didn't work. Fuel varnished up all the valves...
