Interesting note: LS does the same thing as sl (if you have sl installed).

Just for teh lulz (or more realistically, to feed a dream of someday needing more coverage) I turned my home server into a wireless access point by tossing a wifi card into it and running hostapd.

Not exactly a walk in the park, but it wasn't that hard either. I needed extra firmware for the card (firmware package was in the debian nonfree repo) and I had to manually configure a beaconing frequency to get it to announce itself at all.

So far I'm getting reception around the house that's roughly equivalent to the wireless router in the same room as the server.

The SSID is "Linksys" can you see it?

Of course, complete open. However I assumed "I (heart) Sergey!" was yours.

I thought it was "Free Public WiFi"

Who is 'Public Wifi'? For what was he arrested?

Actually I do run my wifi completely open. Anyone within range either already has their own Internet or doesn't care. I would have welcomed leeches just so I could mess with the data stream, but no such luck.

My next experiment is to run both the router's AP and the server's AP with the same SSID, bridged to the same network, on different channels. The eventual goal is to deploy it in a way that the server's AP is the one I expect to be using most of the time, with the router's AP serving as a backup.

I was expecting hostapd to be less than stable, but I suppose that with it being a key component that makes things like OpenWRT work, it's had its share of QA applied.

I think that most if not all of the players in the home router segment are using Linux in their products, so they might be *doing* some of that QA for all I know...

hmmmmm.. leaves his wifi open.

I think I might drive past his house, because he told everone where he lives, monitor his wifi and then when he
logs into facebook I will capture his facebook password.
Then I will write about how horrible facebook and Microsoft (I mean Micro$oft) are, how much he hates Obama and
no one will know!

My facebook password is "Dork Fuckerburg"

But it won't work anymore because I deleted my account. Didn't just deactivate it this time either; I did the full delete.

You have my permission to capture my wife's facebook password. Hopefully you'll make her so upset that she stops using it too.

Because everything wrong with the Internet is facebook's fault, of course.

Well you can blame AOL for that, I guess. (Or the new AOL, which is ... Facebook.)

I miss gopher.  I just might join the last threads of the gopher network via floodgap someday.

There's a semi-active gopher community on sdf.org. I came a little too late to the game for gopher; I used it a little bit in college, but it was mostly dead even then.

Thanks Sig.  I will check it out.  I have a sweet spot for Gopher as my wife was at the U of MN during the hey day of Gopher and the start of Gopher II.  I was mostly digging up things via veronica or archie searches back in college, but did do some mud rooms as well.  Yes, I am old and my wife might be younger :-)  Lucky me.  Back on topic, I did get her to switch from Windows ME to Linux as she hated ME so much.

Hey, when did bash tab-completion of filenames become context sensitive?

I just recently noticed that if I have multiple files with mostly the same name but different suffixes, tab-completion will give me the right one based on the command I'm executing.

For example, if I have "foo.odt" and "foo.pdf" in the same directory, and I type "ls -l foo<TAB>" it will beep and list both files for me ... but if I type "libreoffice foo<TAB>" it will complete to foo.odt, while if I type "evince foo<TAB>" it will complete to foo.pdf.

That's pretty cool and I'm wondering when it came into existence.
