Go due South until you almost get your feet wet & you'll stumble over this warren.

Things are slowish down here - not one of the "went out for 2 hours and found 100 AP's" areas! But the trend's in place and it's always nice to find something in an unexpected place.

How's the activity up with you?

Feet wet? I already get that.. I live in a valley about 30 miles
out from manchester, and its always wet :)

Strangely enough, the town (village?) that I live in has one AP,
so at least thats good for testing. Gave me a heart attack though
when I first saw it.. people around here barely know what a
calculator is, let alone a wireless lan.

As for manchester, I still have to visit with my gear.. lack of a car
is causing some problems and taxi drivers keep thinking that I'm
trying to take over the world...

So, where abouts are you from? Locating a map at this time in
the morning sounds too much like hard work :P

If I had a bike, I would. I spend all of my cash on wireless

Yup.. saw that after I first posted.. doesn't seem to be many
people up north anywhere.. :\

On a happy note, I've finally got Kismet up and running, so
I just gotta find someplace to test it properly.

Built a discone antenna too. Now all I need is a veeeeery small
coax plug. Any ideas anyone?

Having hell trying to connect it up without one!

:D

Just started up 'down south' myself......

have a 5 minute drive around truro in my mates car, with a laptop, and orinoco card, no external antenna, picked up 7 signal's, only 2 WEP. didn't go any further at that point, but my 'own' stumbling setup is on it's way..... motorbike based, laptop in backpack, haven't built an antenna yet, but i'm prob going for a co-linear for initial stumbling, and cantenna for more in depth research.

have a garmin etrex GPS unit plugged into the laptop...so should be able to do a drive by, and later check out the map points, based on long/lat.....

hee hee.....a driving we will go.....a driving we will go....

Sounds good.. you using netstumbler?

Let me know how that GPS device works.. I'm thinking of buying
one for my setup.. should be getting a car in a few weeks.

I've been wandring the streets around here with my laptop
in my backpack, checking it every now and again to see whats
around.. not much around here, but more than I expected.

Actually, I was considering going into manchester during the
commonwealth games - things were set up in a hurry, and
I can see lost of advantages of them using wireless networks.

Let me know how that arial goes too :)

the GPS is spot on!

It's a Garmin etrek unit ( which is on special at 'www maplin.co.uk'), as long as it has a good view of the sky, it's fine. Netstumbler wouldn't pick it up at first, but when i changed the protcol to NWEA it went straight though...i'm in the process now of tryed to get mappoint to log these sites...

i think i'll try to get some antenna's done this weekend.....i did use to be an active radio ham, so i have lot's of people i can ask abt design and construction ;-))

.....so.....how mant of us are there......i've counted abt 3 or 4 including myslef....everybody else lurking???

PS wardriving/chalking was on the main news last night bbc1.

UK/US crossover Reality TV shows

Postby Thorn » Thu Jul 25, 2002 5:32 am

You guys in the UK keep coming up with great shows, and we keep copying them. I say we do some UK/US crossovers using Stumblers:

Changing Rooms/Trading Spaces - Stumblers redecorate each other's living rooms. Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen paints chartruse tiger strips on a 15dBi Yagi.

Hmmm... needs work. OK, OK, how about:

Scrapheap Challange/Junkyard Wars - UK v. US Stumblers constuct 100km WiFi links using old V8 engines, a inner tube, and the periscope from a Russian nuclear sub. Maybe, just maybe...

Ground Force/????
We don't have a US version yet. I really just want to meet Charlie! :D

. . . who's just down the road from current location. Don't want to sound sour but does the phrase "poor man's Rachel De Thame" translate across the Atlantic?

Talking of periscopes: reminds me of Martti Palomaki's "fiction". Can't help but think there should be something in that.

The name didn't mean a thing. Had to do a google on her. Pretty lady. Maybe BBCamerica will carry something she's on.

Sigh. I have got to get back to Ireland and the UK. It's been too long, and the visits are always too short. Besides, Guinness awaits!
