Am flying to Melbourne tomorrow and my friend is a member of the Qantas club.
Last time I was in there they had some Internet terminals. Might see if I can
pull the network cable on one and see if I can get a DCHP lease and surf the
net of my laptop!
Of course a smart person would tie the leases to the MAC addresses of the
machines that were there. Maybe then I could just go into permiscous mode and
do a tcpdump off the wire and pipe it through strings to see what is flying
Um, even better is a wireless card! I hear they are wiring up some of the
airports in the us with "airports", pardon the pun!
I could always tell the story of when I freaked out a planes electrical system
by sending a very large amount of static electricity into the audio system
during the start of a movie, causing everyone to remove their headsets, stand
up and look around. What else is one to do when ones jack on their seat does
not work, you simply have to splice into the headset of your wife. Problem is
you have to hide all the mess of twisted wires, well it was stereo. I chose on
my lap under a blanket. Ever see how much static those blankets can create, not
a good combination! Some things one only does once!
