Follow the Tweets.

Every new command is wrapped in a tweet and posted to Twitter. Following the stream is a great way of staying abreast of the latest commands. For the more discerning, there are Twitter accounts for commands that get a minimum of 3 and 10 votes - that way only the great commands get tweeted.

What others think

This command only pertains to the now deprecated Atheros (tm) wireless driver "madwifi" (www.madwifi-project.org). It won't work with any modern linux releases.

p0g0, I agree with you. But, even though it is deprecated, it is still used by many access points manufacturers out there (actually, I use this command on some wireless access points which just happen to use the madwifi driver, not on regular desktop/server targeted linux distributions). I just forgot to add a note about this to the comment section. Thanks for your comment.
