What's your SSID name?

Title pretty much says it all.

Don't really care if its visible or not, but just wondering if any of you have come across or use a unique SSID name for your wireless.

Mine: I think it is "clarknetwor" or something like that. I am probably going to change it to something a little more clever like "Elvis lives here" or something

Heres a few I thought were good though:
"wonderbra"
"(.)(.)"
"TheShire"
"We can hear you having sex"
"ROFLMAO"

Now it uses the default name created with was something long and ugly like LinksysWepF34q2343 give or take some ugliness.

Last time I set it up, I called it "KTNET".

I work in a few hotels and see tonnes...some of the more interesting ones

"room 680 come and get it" which btw was NOT the room. just a prank from an apartment
"I like it rough"
"ice cream"
"#### off"

My favorite, which happen more often than not, are when you find one installed by peds. Linksys, not locked down for example. I usually change the SSID for them.

"Learn to lock down your internet - unit 20"

or something like that.

I still can't believe how many people still use WEP, what a joke. One's around here I can pick up are usually the name of the company. A firm across the street replied to an email I sent them thru their own network I hacked, they weren't impressed. They finally locked down their wireless properly though

the SSID's of the wireless parking meters are interesting.....they use the number of the meter painted on the meter post, took me awhile to figure out what they were till I sat at a window booth at a cafe looking at some of them. Numbered in sequence, GS001, GS002, GS003 etc etc

Yeah, not broadcasting it, but broadcasting it on an open forum doesn't make much sense.

Meh. Y'all can come over and borrow my wireless anytime... all you have to do is find my house and crack the WEP code (sorry, I know it is inferior etc. etc., I stuck with WEP for device compatibility). But you'll have to park outside... the dog still doesn't take kindly to strangers.
