Finished William Gibson's latest book Zero History last night. I quite liked it. I liked it more than Pattern Recognition and Spook Country. The pacing seemed much better to me this time around. I also felt a bit more connected with the main characters than I had in the past books.
It did leave me wanting some new toys/gadgets but thats okay.
I've spent the last couple days geeking out with an old laptop and some linux, squid, mogrify, madwifi, and some iptables. I've still got to nail down configuration files and scripts but at this point its really just a matter of connecting the dots. The dots being AP Bridging or Routing then port forwarding stuff.
