Asus EEE… apparently will run a hacked Mac OS X install… hmm!
This is too tempting. £200 for a pocket sized, lightweight, ultra-portable Mac laptop. I’ve just been to London this week, and it was a pain in the ass dragging the 15″ MacBook Pro around and trying to use it while waiting for trains etc.
This Asus will appeal to many Mac geeks… will let you know how it works for stumbling ;)
Trip to Santander, via the Alsa Supra, stops in Oviedo first, then onto Santander. Total trip time about 3 hours.

Gijón is pretty much uncharted territory on wigle.net, so I brought my GPS, laptop and USB wifis with me this trip. Since I didn’t have a car to cruise round in, I set up my laptop up on my son’s walker and pushed him down to the beach for a stroll in the evening…
I was pretty amazed by the results, a helluva lot of APs, and a lot of the were unprotected or just WEP.

I’m on holiday in Spain, Gijón to be precise. It’s a lovely town, right by the sea, very hot, affluent and safe… and lots of APs. So what does a geek do? Get the laptop and wifi gear out for a scan!
From a walk through the apartment, into each room, I collected 124 APs. Not bad going! The placement of the APs is all over the place, because the GPS unit was indoors and probably lost it’s signal. But here’s the results of a 30 second walk!

I had a meeting in north Manchester today, and needed to take my laptop to go see
property developers Dylan Harvey. Cue hoping in the car and rigging up the kit to look like NASA control…

I didn’t go the ‘scenic’ route, through Rishton and Clayton-le-moors, maybe next time…
Honing in on office space, so you can make an educated guess as to where we’re going from this map.

oh dear, this could be bad news for a lot of people who can’t be bothered to set up their routers correctly… but you get what you deserve, I guess.
More traveling around, looking at suitable office space, with the laptop scanning away.
Two scans here, one around Blackburn and Preston, and one over to Burnley.

So we’re moving offices soon, and are looking at business parks around the area, so the stumblin’ gear was set up in the car and off we went

I got a Linksys WUSB54G v4 off Ebay last week, with the intention of modding it for an external antenna, but took it for a drive earlier today.I was picking up a lot more SSIDs during a drive around town, routes I’ve travelled before and I’m pretty sure I was picking up SSIDs from both sides of the street, as opposed to the houses on the side I’m driving. It’s done my wigle.net stats the world of good ;)
Looks like the WUSB54G is a good, receptive bit of kit. Can’t wait for the modding!
