I used the wardriving box at home after I noticed I hadn't used it at all in over two months. It hung after a while, not responding to network or keypresses but still reporting on ethernet link state changes. I thought the temperature might have something to do with it since the box does get a bit warm and it was in the direct sun. So I loaded the internal sensor driver w83627hf which is mentioned in the voyage linux getting started page and had a check:ritchie:/sys/devices/platform/w83627hf.656# cat temp?_input 72000 56500 5100072 ⁰C seems a bit high, but other reports of measured temperatures list the same values, like this openbsd on the alix1c for www.stare.cz dmesg shows. Later during the day with the wardriving box out of the direct sun it keeps running fine. With the probable hardware for the weather station computer also being an alix1.d the ideas now include measuring and graphing of all available temperatures, if only to keep an eye on possible stability issues. Update: 47 new wi-fi networks found without moving the wardrivebox 1 centimetre... Update 2012-08-24: I wanted to bring the wardriving box on my bike but .. the carrier on the back is slightly broken from earlier wardriving, and there is no place to stick the gps to at the moment.
