I claim to be the first to practice real warclimbing.

My N800 with Kismet running:

  1. HMMM, the options: Warflying, Warcycling, Warclimbing, WarBalooning,….

    So that leaves WarBalooning for me since it seems the others have also been done. πŸ˜‰

    Too bad I’m afraid of heights. Actually, I did some tests when I used to take the train to work and I would get signals just before entering the station of Leuven but the train doesn’t stop there of course. Does that count as wartraining? Oh, that doesn’t sound like it’s supposed to.

  3. Warclimbing, in a gym? Meh. Show us the pictures when you do it on real rocks.

  4. Deal!

    But I know from experience that you don’t get WiFi on the crags here in Belgium πŸ˜‰

    Urban climbing is also an option.

  6. Aah… The endless discussions about knots…

    I’ll regret this, but OK, let’s start it: tell me, how do you tie the knot?

  7. Can I borrow your N800, I will do a test in Ecuador in the Andes πŸ™‚

  8. Well… You should know that the N800 doesn’t operate above 800 meters. You should find someone with a N6000 πŸ˜‰

  9. Hmm.. My comment last week didn’t make it in.

    The general gist of dressing knots is to make sure that there are no crossovers when the ropes should be running parallel, so that the knot will be as strong as possible. You had tied the knot correctly, but there was one minor crossover, which could be quickly fixed by dressing the knot as below:

  11. Did you run into any problems installing kismet on your n800? I get a cannot create window error. Any suggestions?
