  1. I've done the same thing a few times, once over a longer distance for about an hour just walking round a new estate in my village, and the other times just on the way home from a mates house or whatever. Picked up quite a lot of insecure networks, more than anywhere else in the village (but mostly in the "posh" estate). Interestingly here in the UK on a program called Inside Out (East Anglia only I think?) did a special on insecure wireless networks and wardriving; even actually going out and doing some wardriving. They incorrectly used the term wardriving however, although their security "expert" corrected them. (the whole: logging where they are is legal, connecting is not) Now because of the program I am expecting, and hoping, to see an increase in wireless security in my area. Time will tell as I am planning to do another sweep. :devil:
  2. StankDawg you're a great guy, a great person to listen to on the radio. Take care in RL. :help:

  4. I used to be really into shell switching in Windows, but they always seem to be bloated and buggy, and so I always ended up going back to explorer.exe. Others to try are Geoshell and SharpE, which is pretty good, but buggy when I first used it. They're both fairly minimalistic (Geoshell especially, which is probably the more stable of the two), but as I say I haven't been into it a lot recently. *shrugs* Just thought I'd mention it
  5. Or even IpCop (http://www.ipcop.org), which is based on Smoothwall. I use it and recommend it. Again, it cannot function as DNS. But like someone said, I wouldn't recommend putting DNS on the same machine as Firewall/IDS. Anyway, IpCop: It's easy to configure, lots of features. I'm not sure quite how it compares to Smoothwall, so it might even just be down to personal preference ;-)
  6. Well GPSDrive uses Expedia maps, so I assume therefore that it must be able to enter co-ordinates into Expedia somehow, probably direct URL. No doubt various other places do it, but if GPSDrive has managed to do it and get the image directly, then no doubt you can Oh, and it's probably best to edit posts instead of posting new ones, keeps you outta trouble with the moderators
  7. That's the one! I'd forgotten what it was called. Ever knowledgable as always tiocsti.
  8. Yeah best to follow the above link word for word. If you want the power of Gentoo without the nasty installation then I suggest VidaLinux, I haven't tried it, but apparently it's not all that bad. Based on Gentoo, uses the Anaconda install from Red Hat. If you really want to install Gentoo, then good luck, follow the handbook exactly as it says. I didn't have any luck reading it beforehand, I just had to follow it. I did a Stage 1 install, expect lots of hanging around waiting for things to compile if you do the same (If I'd know back then, I would've used distcc).
  9. I'm speaking from a Windows front, not having much experience with Linux but the stuff still applies. If your GPS receiver is following the usual standards then it will be sending the co-ordinates, along with lots of other information (number of satellites, position of satellites etc.) at certain intervals, down the serial port connection. You can pick this up in Windows using HyperTerminal. I wouldn't know how, but if you just want the co-ordinates then you're looking for something that can read input off a serial port, then just filter out the co-ordinates. Then you could use a server (Expedia allows co-ordinate inputs I think, GPSDrive for Linux uses it. Have you tried that program?) to get the maps based on your co-ordinates. The only difficult bit then is mapping the co-ordinates on, and knowing what the co-ordinates of the edge of the map are, so that you can tell it to download a new map when it's out of range. That's my take on it, although you probably knew all that. It is probably possible to do the whole lot in a script of some sort, I'm not one for programming sorry The other way would be to log the co-ordinates, then later on map them. However that might not be what you have in mind.
  10. MSH

    It's taken quite a few things from *NIX shells, and uses XML a lot, which makes it quite powerful in manipulating data - as the outputs of the MSH commands are outputted in such a way (columns etc) that you can output them to XML etc. It also has a command for interpreting old commands (for example netstat) to manipulate them in the same way. That said, it also has long commands (commandlets, as previous mentioned), but you can use aliases (similar to bash?) to shorten them. For example cd as a commandlet is command-change-directory or something like that (look in the manual, I can't remember). It also seems quite bloated, but that may just be the beta. I'm at school right now, so I can't run it and find out what I was last doing with it, it seems good for writing scripts, I'd like to see if anyone had any useful ideas for it? I'm not one for writing useful scripts
  11. OK I see, I agree with that, they are in a position to combine it in a 'dangerous way' as you say. Thanks for clearing that up. Do people here honestly believe they will do this? Or is it just the idea that they could?
  12. Did I miss the link? Or did you? Whatever, you can find it on Silverex.org.
  13. I'm asking purely because I'm intrigued, but what's the difference between Google and say...Microsoft, not the whole company: MSN Search, combined perhaps with Hotmail, and perhaps if you combine all of that with the Microsoft Passport as Stank said. But even without the Passport, surely it's the same situation - they're going to log all of the MSN Search searches as well. Surely so do Yahoo!, and they have email, calendar, and so on. So why pick on Google? I agree it does seem a bit freakish, and that this "search history" is probably a smokescreen to try and reduce this FUD about them (whether it's correct FUD or not...). So after all that nonsense above that I've written, what's the summing up 'bit'? Well I think, like lots of things, Google are in the limelight, therefore they are a target for FUD, just like everything else, there are always conspiracy theories. After all, who can think anything bad of a company with this as their logo today I think the real issue is the fact that the leaders of the world are in reality 7ft-high lizardmen...

  15. Hopefully it will be backward compatible, otherwise wardrivers are going to have to invest in all new hardware if it becomes standard. Knew this would happen just as I'm thinking of getting some wardriving kit.
