No wireless-LAN hardware yet. I'll be picking up a Unisys CloneArmy box soon, and playing with binoculars on my rooftop. I still need a wireless card, pigtail, and rooftop antenna. My goal is to have fun learning, teach anyone who wants to have fun, and subvert the dominant paradigm.


p.s. remember, [ "the airwaves belong to the people"].

Update: 29-Aug-2002 -- A few hours ago I attended the PTP meeting, bough my first wireless card and now at midnight I couldn't resist trying it out. Here I am at the corner of Market St. and Park, somewhere near the Park Blocks node, and I'm SURFING friggin' WIRELESSLY!@#@! Thanks PTP crew!
