Ding Ding Ding There's Wi-Fi

outSSIDer is the lonely little application that’s there for you when you drop your phone in the big city and you really need to twitter about it. Get the laptop, open outSSIDer, close the lid, then start walking around. When it makes a successful connection to a wireless network, it’ll make a ding sound. If it is then successful in retrieving a file (in this case, Google’s favicon) from the great internet, it’ll start dinging frantically. If not, well, it’s the hi-hat, of course.

I wasn’t joking about closing the laptop lid, by the way — you stand out a little when you walk around looking at an open laptop making cymbal noises.

outSSIDer is based on inSSIDer, a Wi-Fi diagnostics tool.
