NodeGSG is back. Using a surplus access point and NoCat, there is now free (limited) wifi access here. 17 neighbours have found the network and tried to view some websites sofar.
Actually, it's more likely that 17 neighbour laptops have tried to access WindowsUpdate, but got blocked ;-)
External access is shaped to 64/64Kbit using shaperd, so I still keep decent bandwidth for myself and the business. It's also set up to transparently proxy through squid, to keep external bandwidth use to a minimum.
For browsing sites and/or checking webmail it should be dandy this way.
Last week I downloaded a whole bunch of Linux CD and DVD ISOs (CentOS, Mandriva, Ubuntu) to hand out to a bandwidth-unfortunate at the next LUV meeting. These are sitting on one of the machines here and I plan to share those out to whomever wants them.
