This is the plan, at least!
I'm not a math person, so I ask people what they think about how
to "triangulate" APs detected during a wardrive. I asked this guy here at
my contract, and today there was a piece of paper with mad-scientist
scriblings on it, and a diagram. Once I encode this, I'll post it here for
review. I ask lots of people about how to do this, few give any answers at
all, so I'm kinda excited.
Also, I dunno if people are interested, I posted a game proposal
-- a way to make wardriving into a fun game that doesn't hurt people, or
encourage network security violations.
