Switching and Routing for All Wireless Multi-Beam Ad-Hoc Networks

coderman: "The use of multi-beam antenna arrays for transmission and reception allows wireless units to send and receive tens of beams in different directions and using multiple frequency bands. If we deploy a large number of such multi-beam wireless units over a large area, we obtain a highly connected and high capacity wireless network. We call this the All Wireless Network (AWN)"
wmf: <coderman> I'm going to figure out how to do this for free with Linux
coderman: yes, with DMA based PCI 802.11a/b/g devices with adaptive MAC's coded in linux drivers
coderman: Card costs $25 in bulk. Use 8 of them. $200. Put a 1 watt amp (set for 500mW) on each, $800. Antennas at cross polarization and channels set for long haul point to point, $400. So with two end points, each about $1,400 in cost, you can bridge 400Mbits of full duplex traffic over 20-60 miles.

I'd like to have $386493 to buy wireless equipment with

coderman: NSF CISE grant program
wmf: integrated services sucks, stupid networks rule
Ash: <codermang> HAHA i 0wnX0r j00 wi+5 m`/ 3000-w@77 802.11b amp

kherr: FBI running popup ads for their most wanted.
kherr: Which won't be seen if people have JavaScript turned off or crippled.
kherr: Will the federal gov't require popup ad support?
smackthud: and does using ad blocking software constitute obstruction of justice


kherr: When government wants to spend money, bad consulting rushes in.
kherr: <smackthud> Oh good lord. that's like a friggin prop from one of the RoboCOP movies


Loki: This guy was believable until he blamed the Illuminati.

Somebody has taken down a number of mirrors of the Nuclear Weapons FAQ

deltab: in MPEG





wmf: weird


gps: froogle is cool but how can it compete with shopper.cnet.com or mysimon.com without price sorting and vendor rating?



Loki: gNiall attempts to learn whatever language you try to teach it. It is basically a disassociator: it collects statistics on sentences you type and tries to construct meaningful replies.

webstart, all because of webstart. it would fucking rule to deploy software this way.

url for this Mccusker thing everyone's talking about

On Dec 5, U.S. Sen Strom Thurmond (R-SC) turned 100. How did he celebrate the milestone?

seti: he invited his parents?
jillzilla: For those not familiar with Mr Thurmond, he has been in the Senate since roughly the beginning of time, and was a militant segregationist, believing blacks should use separate public accomodations from whites, and live in separate places.
jillzilla: In other words, so far beyond "asshole" that words fail me.
Ash: Assssssssssssssssshooooooooooooooooooooooooooolioooooooooo
