I will consider selling/mailing CD's if you can't handle the download, I need to check the GPL but I think I can charge for the cd + shipping + burn time. Let me know if you are interested...

August 10 2002 - RELEASE!

Warchalking providing a means to commit crime? On Ananova.
Maybe those "firms" should invest in some wireless securty. just a rare rational thought.

August 4 2002
New version of WarLinux soon, working out bugs with new bootloader.

August 1 2002
802.11b at 65Mph, A Driving Wireless Network. (/.)
The houston computer consultant that proved the county's wireles system was vulberable gets $20,000 bail and is in court.

This is obviously an over-reaction by the totally clueless Harris County District Clerk's office.
If they'd rather some blackhat drive by (know that we all know the vulnerability exists), then let em.
This seems to be one of the down-sides of "if you don't like it, sue em" mentality in the U.S.
Someone should back down, and it shouldn't be the consultant.

August 1 2002
A scenario that involves the FBI and wireless hacking.
An auctual case of a movie pirate sending movies on someone else's bandwidth.
