        First, some praise.

        I really, really like the ability to selectively turn on or off 
the display of the network id and the BSSID, independently.  Thank 

        I like the new color schemes chosen for displaying the network 
graph.  Nice and easily distinguishable.

        I also like the ability to average the signal strength over a 
variable period of time, from 2 to 300 seconds.  However, I would 
prefer to exclude zeros from that average, so that we only average 
values where we had something to measure.

        Now, some problems.

        I have an Aiport and a Senao SL2511CD-PLUS in this PowerBook G4. 
I have two Airport base stations downstairs (one set up in bridging 
mode only, the other set up to bridge/route/NAT/DHCP/etc....  With 
0.05e, I could be scanning with my Senao while flood pinging my two 
aiport stations from two separate terminal windows.  With 0.05f, I 
can sniff traffic with my Senao, but I can't generate any traffic 
with my Airport card, otherwise KisMac wedges and I get a spinning 
beachball, which means I have to force-quite KisMac to do anything 

        Overall, this is a significant improvement over 0.05e.  Once we 
can get the beachball problems solved, I'd happy to move forward with 
using this as my starting point for the wireless signal strength 
article I had previously mentioned.
