A couple questions for all you Londoners

Postby Ozymandias IV » Sun Aug 21, 2005 6:24 pm

I'm going to be in London for a few days this month, and I'm wondering if you can get The Daily Show with Jon Stewart in London. Also, are there any places to go for free internet access, like librairies or restaurants, etc.

War chalking and War driving are different.

War driving, is driving around hopping from Wireless network to Wireless network.

War chalk is the process of using chalk to mark out houses that have an unsecured wireless network. Then other warchalkers recognise the signs, and use the network as well. Often war chalkers lead trails from wifi hot spots or similar places that take you to 'em.

warchalkin is actually getting bigger in the area im at. I did a little back home but it never really picked up outside of my little nerd crew. but i was just driving downtown the other day and started seeing all these little chalk symbols on curbs and light posts. i should get back into it and have a little fun sometime soon. :twisted:

Bear in mind, that using a wireless network in the UK without the explicit permission from the owner of the network is illegal, even if it's a fully open access point that's broadcasting an SSID >_<

I have actually seen a few of those markings around in glasgow. Honestly had no idea what the hell they were but i do now.

This of course is no doubt going to drop me in it, but hey why the hell not.
