    Yea, it's not like access is really expensive. Get all your neighbors together and buy your own T-1!

    Also, I'd say most wardrivers *have* their own net at home. It's fun to sit out and use someone else's net... until it's time to find a bathroom. ;)
    Unfortunately the usg doesn't see it being similar... in fact there are laws that have been made to prevent such things as theft of services... it is only a matter of time before wardriving moves from gray to jet black... right now it is just about the fun.

    I get quite a few emails daily from other users on other boards asking with help on how to get phree access so they can browse the net at lunch using either their corporate ap's, or using ap's across the street, or nearby their area where they sit in their cars for lunch.

    As usual it isn't the true geek/hacker/technologist that is doing this abuse, it is those who only do minimal effort to learn something... new terms: WarKiddie, WiFiKiddie... they always ruin it for everyone else.. :(

    Yea, XP is like that. Dummy me thinking everyone has NT or 2000. Then again a parasite surfer cannot be any worse than the sextracker.txt cookies and all the other spyware!

    Wouldn't matter anyway, with xp spoofing the mac is simpler than changing the background on the desktop.

    I almost blew a buddy away with a .45 because he came to visit at 3am and wanted to tap on the window. Use the door dumy! Anyway folks may not understand that strip, I saw it today ad loved it, and I doubt they'll secure their wi-fi via their mac address.

    Folks may not like you doing it but in reality once they find out you know how to fix computers they'll probably welcome you!

    it is also an excellent way of breaking the ice with new neighbors. neighbor comes over and wants to know why you are on your roof with a laptop and a coffee can. you quickly hide the coffee can, introduce yourself, and voila! friends are made.

    put out the good word, i was also thinking we should all drive ice cream trucks and public utility vehicles. that way it might not be as noticeable when we drive around the neighborhood. :D

    here is my response to this in regards to if it is good or bad publicity.. :

    I see it as It is bad publicity.
    I interpreted as a mockingly being thrown to the same level as software piracy, illegal p2p software/music/movie trading... Sure it is funny to read... but imagine the millions of sheep that read this that have no clue what stumbling is, it probably isn't as funny for them.

    ... again another example of the free speech double-edged sword.
