2023 Resolutions

Welcome to my New Year's Resolutions! I feel a little vulnerable sharing my goals publicly and auditing if I failed or succeeded over the year. 

My 2023 Resolutions


2) Upload to WiGLE every month

3) Post to the blog at least once a month

4) Continue to follow and maintain my vision board.

Don't judge me! I thought they were cheesy and weird, but it's been so effective. I made a blog post about it already, but just as a refresher my current board is below.

A vision board is almost a resolution list in of itself. These are all the things I want to achieve in the near future. 

5) Pass the HAM radio exam

6) Continue in content creation and make articles or a podcast

Let's go over what my resolutions where last year:

My 2022 Resolutions

1) Make it to 500,000 unique wifi networks

I made it in November! I achieved this goal and obtained the gold WiGLE badge. 

2) Upload to WiGLE every month

I made this most months, but not every month. I will try again!

3) Wardrive in a state that is not: Indiana, Michigan, Illinois, Ohio, Kentucky or Missouri

Okay technically I wardrove in Florida, but I was there for a business trip, not specifically for wardriving, so I don't know if this counts.

4) Continue to see the trainer once a week

My first trainer quit, and I had an awesome trainer for a few months, but then she got fired/quit. It's not the reason I stopped going, but it's the reason I haven't gone back to training. I feel like I'll just handle my fitness on my own. 

6) Post to the blog at least once a month

I nowhere near achieved this goal this year. I will acknowledge I've been posting more frequently since the fall, but for the entire summer I did not post. This will definitely be a goal that I'm carrying into the new year. 

7) I want to be a better person this year than I was last year.

My therapist says I've grown as a person, so that's an approval, yeah? But all jokes aside, I believe I have become at least a shade better than I was in the previous year.

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. Use landmarks around the city to define the internal roads Wardrive Profit ("internet

My next talk: Come see me at CactusCon 2023!

Your smartphone is your best friend and worst enemy. Are you being listened to? Do you want to listen to someone else? This apps on your phone know more about you than you think, and there are more tools to make you cringe. Yes and no, “they are listening.” The apps are gathering so much information it seems like they are listening. This talk will discuss what privacy concerns you should have with your smartphone and will discuss how you can use your smartphone to do some surveillance of your own.
