L33tdawg: What a coincidence. That's Malaysia's National Day as well. What better excuse to go out war driving when you've got a public holiday to go with it as well! *grin*

Feel the power of increased reception (j/k) WARDRIVER Stickers are available on the web for the serious WarDrivers for the low price of $3.00 a pop. The stickers are vinyl so they work with laptops, car windows and other non-textured surfaces. Free shipping in the US, if I lived in Malaysia I'd hook up the shipping for free too :) You can meet chicks with these bitchin' stickers, or make new friends with a fellow WarDriver. Never drive around without one!
L33tdawg: Think I could have one? Heh. I need chickz! LOL!
L33tdawg: This posting is meant specifically for Amy, who's like going all mental and everything from doing an in depth study into broadband network technologies in Malaysia! Don't forget this topology diagram! *grin*. Regarding the article though -- have these guys lost their minds?! I mean sure, war-driving is pretty cool and all, but this is taking things a little too far!
