My 2021 New Year's Resolutions

 In 2019, I made my New Year's Resolution to not drink in 2020. I had no idea what 2020 had in store, and I made it until RBG died, September 18th 2020, before I drank again. Even after, I hadn't had more than a few drinks at a time since. I still plan on not drinking or getting drunk, but it inspired me to make a ton of New Year's Resolutions for 2021.

Resolutions

I'm not sure if I'll make any of these come true, but if I could have some success on the last resolution, maybe I can be successful with a few more. I'm not comfortable sharing every goal, but there are a few that I think maybe fun to reflect on later! Two traditional goals, and two wardriving goals! 

1) Meatless Mondays
2) No Candy Wednesdays
3) Submit to Wigle every month
4) ....and the Grand Finale: Make an optimized trip half-way across the country in my truck!

The first two goals are based on my consumption. I eat way too much candy and I don't have to explain why that's bad - and I should probably go see the dentist. Reducing my metal consumption largely due to the fact that reducing meat consumption is a key part of reducing climate change. Also, it's 2021 and money is getting tight so it'll hopefully have a beneficial monetary impact as well. I feel equally attached to meat and candy, and these foods are big vices for me. 

Wardriving

Wigle has stats that are based on your overall monthly contribution and overall contribution. While it's not just important to Wigle each month for my stats, it's also important for the WiGLE team I am on. The WiGLE group stats page states this month and last month's stats too. You can check my current WiGLE stats in the sidebar of my site! This site - dnsprincess.com, hehe. Check it out below:

Thus, the main reason I made this goal is to contribute to my group stats. Last month (December 2020) I made a serious effort to get some good wardriving in, and I only found 25 thousand new WiFi networks. Kentaro and Aardvark scored more than me, per usual, with only their typical amount of effort. Brock (init_6_) and I basically haven't traveled at all in 2020, leaving to scores like his, 0s for the month.


 In order to avoid this, I must at least submit every month! Wardriving is actually a pretty secluded activity, so the biggest obstacle is optimizing the route. Speaking of optimizing routes, that leads to my next biggest goal. Stick around for my dedicated post about it next. I'm going to be saying Happy New Year the whole month of January this year. Merry 2021!

*Properly it's written WiGLE, but when I use it as a very I tend to write Wigle. I'm wrong, it's correctly WiGLE - don't come at me.

How to Wardrive: Know where to go

Inspired by others, and my goal of getting a golden WiGLE badge, I went wardriving for my birthday. I was hoping for 50k, and I ended up with just over 61k. I'm less than 80k away from my goal! But how do you pick a place to wardrive, and how do you actually do  it? The easiest way is to download WiGLE on an android phone, get some transportation, and be set on your way. But if you want more detail or some tips, keep reading.  Avon Lady Method : Find a city within reasonable distance of travel Examine the results for the past few years of the area; do not use the overall coverage of all time.  Verify if the city is desirable for wardriving Little coverage in the past few years Most residential areas are not covered Use maps to search and define high density residential areas (i.e. apartments, town homes).  Create an order that allows for little overlapping and in a convenient driving pattern. Use landmarks around the city to define the internal roads Wardrive Profit ("internet

2021 & 2022 Resolutions

 I am not into the whole "New Year, New Me" thing 2022 is going to make 2020 look like a baby. Last year, I made a post about my resolutions and goals for the year, and I thought now would be a great time to update on that. Let's revisit my resolutions from last year: 2021 1) Meatless Mondays 2) No Candy Wednesdays 3) Submit to WiGLE every month (almost!) 4) ... and the Grand Finale: Make an optimized trip half-way across the country in my truck! So I didn't do a great job. I had some other resolutions that I didn't post, and I also didn't do so great on those. I almost summitted to WiGLE every month, but I missed October and November. Similarly, I had a resolution to post to my blog once a month, and I almost made it, except I missed the last two posts. Hopefully, I will make this up by writing posts and back-dating them, so I would at least have completed the goal.  Resolutions I think my goals failed for various reasons. I didn't make realistic goals fo

The problem with sensing finger magnets

 Okay, I have to make this post quick, but the second part will be way worth the payoff. October 3rd I'm having one of my sensing magnets taken out that I've had for about 5 years; since Nov 2016. It's clearly rejected and when I tried to make the situation better, I made it worse.  In previous posts or tweets, I've mentioned I had a method to re-stimulate the magnet. Do not attempt. It's likely the reason it's now rejected after so many years.  Biohacking comes with a lot of risk, especially if you're afraid of needles and knives, but the benefits outweight the risks. I loved having a strong magnetic sense with both of the magnets. I love the honor I've had to have them all this time. But now it's painful to use my finger and there's a large black bulge where the magnet wants to exit my finger.  Some questions I have before cutting open: 1. How am I going to numb my finger? What method will work? 2. Is the coating or silicone broken? Any risk of
