    Ever since i upgraded to Leopard, Macstumbler won't load at all (not like it was very stable previously... but now i can't open it at all).

    There must be other wireless locators... Macstumbler cannot be the only wardriving tool out there for the Mac, is it?

    signal strength readouts, graphs, persistent scanning (picks up more APs than a one-time sweep done by your airport menu bar widget)

    there's other reasons too but that's off the top of my head

    when I travel i like to open up one of the stumbling programs to see if there are any open wifi spots that i can "borrow". it's nice to see the signal strength, if it's encrypted and stuff like that.
