Useful site for Mac users

A friend pointed me to the site when I was looking for more information on accessing the 'airport' from the comand line. I found this useful for printing your access point
$ system_profiler SPAirPortDataType | awk -F": " '/Current Wireless Network/{print $2}'
or even for locating airport stuff try
$ locate / | grep "/airport$"
I noticed that the iwconfig stuff of linux didn't work, but of coarse BSD use ifconfig. I will try to keep putting usefull information concerning macs and wireless here on my blog, mostly because I want to be able to find these things again. macosxhints is a valuable site. If you no of any other please leave a comment. I'm currently interrested in PPC assembler links and 802.11 mac related links. Kismac has been fun to play with, however I would like to start using packet injection, and need to get that sorted out.

another interresting thing I found out was the post I left earlier about crypto and SSH
$ ssh-keygen -t rsa should be $ sshkeygen -t rsa on a mac
and ssh-copy-id didn't seem to work in OSX. probably a trivial tweak needs to be done in syntax.

cheers, merry Christmas all
