#WardrivingWednesday

 I've attempted, with mixed results, to establish a hashtag on Mastodon on Wednesdays for wardriving. Why? Because I feel like it. There are so many awesome people in the wardriving space that could probably do it better, but I'm going to do it instead. 

I cannot recall where I heard this general rule of thumb, but I believe it was Dragorn who said "For every adapter you can go about 10mph". I wonder how true that is, and I wonder more how I would begin to test that theory. This is something I'd like to figure out, and will likely need some assistance. 

I also plan on remaking my rigs with raspberry pi alternatives. Right now there is a lot of drama surrounding raspberry pi, but I'm doing it just because of the cost and supply issues. There are many alternatives now, and I'm sure they'll make a few rigs. I'll keep the updates posted under the hashtag on Wednesday.

If you're interested in wardriving you should join the RF Sanctuary Discord. There's a lot more than wardriving there, but the folks there are very interesting: Discord Invite

It's going to be a stretch goal to consistently post on Wednesday, but posting is on my vision board, so there ya go. Those are my plans for it and I hope it brings even better stumbling!

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

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.
