“30 Things you didn’t know about the Tech Guy” and WarDriving for Anonimity

I found a couple of articles some of you may find useful or funny.

30 Things you didn’t know about the tech guy

The first one is a list done by Francesco Marciuliano over at drinkatwork.com titled “30 Things You Didn’t Know About Your Office Tech Guy” and I have to say this is pretty acurate. Some of my favorites (and the ones that apply to me) are

– Peanuts and dairy products could kill him.
– He was ecstatic to learn Jeri Ryan is single again.
– His drinks, food, mints, hair gel, toothpaste and contact lens solution are all caffeinated.
– He is, at this very moment, quoting “Office Space.”

Uh…..Yea (– Bill Lumberg, Office Space) Well head on over to HERE to check out the full list.

WarDriving for Anonimity

The second link I have for you is an article by T Shark over at i-hacked.com about WarDriving to stay anonymous on the internet. It has all the info you’ll need to find open Wireless AP’s and spoof your MAC address to use them anonymously. Read the full article HERE

Some Linux and Mac alternatives to the software Shark reccomends are listed below.

– Instead of NetStumbler use Kismac, MacStumbler or iStumbler
– Instead of SMAC use XNU
– Instead of NetStumbler use Kismet
– Instead of SMAC use The GNU MAC Changer
