Clueless dork question: Access to what?
| 6:43 pm on Aug 20, 2002 (gmt 0)|
Wireless access points for wifi. Driving around looking for chalk marks that denote a open wireless network (802.11b).

Ah. I have a feeling I'd be wasting my time if I drove around Fairbanks looking for an open wireless network.

You'd be surprised what you would find :)

First I'd have to get a wireless card for my laptop... heheh. And then, if I couldn't find anything good, I'd be stuck with a useless wireless card.

Don't be so sure. ;) You might be suprised at how pervasive wireless communications have become in this area.

Heheh... you do much o' that newfangled wardriving, evinrude? Or does your office have a wifi network? ('cause I know where you work... ;) )

Hehehe, I'll admit to nothing. NOTHING! :)
As to your second question, yes we do, though we have access locked down to MAC address and logins. The rest of Fairbanks, well, next time you are in the local department stores, look up while you walk around, and you notice antennas every now and then. Inventory management often goes over wireless these days, and often using store bought wifi gear. I've even noticed home-based gear in some stores, such as the Linksys wireless access points. :P
