Okay, I just went for a wardrive here in Adelaide running kismac.

I'm really f*cking impressed.  It picked up 30 AP's, and I did the same 
trip the night before in Linux on the same machine with Kismet, and I 
think it picked up six or seven?

Wierd, I wouldn't imagine the power levels would be any different, but 
its the same laptop/card.

Using speech preferences to allow me to talk to it is really, really 
cool too - I say scan, it scans :-)

Two things I'd love to see is automatically saving the AP list - I had 
it logging into a pcap file which ethereal read perfectly, but I lost 
the AP list (so now that I've gotten out the car I don't know what AP's 
I got *g*)... something I always liked with netstumbler was loading a 
previous list, so I could gain a huge list of every AP I've ever 
stumbled.  The other is having the IP range if found displayed on the 
main screen.  Apart from that, its awesome, especially considering its 
an alpha release :-)

I successfully compiled the new kernel (Mac OS X seems faster now too - 
wierd), and closing the lid occasionally causes my entire powerbook to 
turn off - anybody know about heat issues with the 500mhz units?  
Leaving the unit on for say a hour with the lid closed won't cause any 
major issues?
