My new Hobby

2010/03/26

I have a new Hobby!

It’s: checking the air for Wlans/wifi to see whats their name! It’s totaly awesome!I got an ipod touch lately and i’m so amazed about the wifi-feature of this thing. I constantly walk arround checking for wifis and see their name. I am addicted to this already! It’s a wonder i am still alive and didn’t get hit by a truck or something!

This is some sort of virtual graffiti or wifi-lan-poetry. Realy! I am amazed how much creativity and effort people put in this matter. In my barrio:

  • Die Looser
  • Hal 9000
  • werdasliestistdoof (who reads this is an idiot) – a real classic!
  • nasensprayjunkie (nosesprayjunky)
  • charlesmansonfamilyserver
  • crashtestserver
  • brucelee
  • ökoschlampe (?)
  • gadafi
  • matrix (gähn! moahn!)
  • Marius_rockt
  • Leonardo Davinchi (a pizzarestaurant!)

And whats more fun: To think why and how they ever had chosen this name. What kind of people call their station: “Popelhöhle”(snot-cavern)?

And even more fun to see how people interact or you can actually say “slowchat” via their wlans! A week ago some guy called his station: “Fc bayern“. Then, after a view days, some guy called his wifistation:”lederhosenhasser” (leathertrousers-hater) then the first guy changed the name to:”LHH-hasser” next day: some wlan called “Herta bsc” (another soccer-club) apeared. Now the first two changed to “herta go home” and “Herta-hasser“. Issn’t that great?

In my neighbourhood there is one called “Schatzinsel” and the other “Long John Silver”

Also some realy funny examples for funny Wlan-names: (my favourite is “we can hear you having sex” ^_^)

As much as i enjoy the others names i am too lazy to think of a good one for myself. So ours still got a name like Alice4 8 15 16 23 42. Some neighbor also wasnt too much into choosing funny names and just sticks to “horst_kaulap_lan”. Come on!
