    Hey guys I’ve been meaning to attend 2600 for years now. I just never have a ride. I live in Pasadena. Just thought I’d say thank you for keeping the party going. I WILL make it one of these Fridays! Hope to see you all soon. 32/m/Pasadena

  • Emmanuel Goldstein says:

    By the way my uncle is Greg Martin from Dead Horse. I just noticed the link to Death Metal Underground. Also I thought I’d give you guys an exploit I (and I’m sure others) have figured out for free Xfinity wifi AP access all over town. It works in a pinch.

    You see all those Xfinity hotspots that are open that allow you an hour for free just by providing your name and email address with the option to buy more hours . you see them all over town right?

    It’s because the Xfinity access points the wireless routers that they put in your house nowadays actually has two ssids coming out of them. one for you and one that’s open for everybody.

    You following me so far

    Okay that’s their way of blanketing a whole city or area with their Wi-Fi that you can purchase. But the cool thing is if you run Linux you can change your Mac address every hour and get a free hour over and over and over again they don’t even validate the emails or the names.

    sudo ifconfig wlan0 down #Take wifi adapter down
    sudo ‘/usr/bin/macchanger’ -r wlan0 #Change wifi adapter MAC to “random”
    sudo ifconfig wlan0 up #Turn wifi adapter back on with new MAC
    sudo ifconfig -a #Displays new MAC
