Stealing Skype - A How-To

This image was lost some time after publication, but you can still view it here.

This is an interesting little hack. It's not illegal, per se, because you're kind of performing a service for Boingo. However, it seems like quite a lengthy process just to get some free SkypeOut service. Apparently, if you buy the Linksys WRV54G and install special Boingo Firmware, you get a free account on Boingo thereby allowing you to use Skype for free (??). I don't have this router nor am I particularly excited about becoming a Boingo access point, so maybe it's not for me. But maybe it's for you, and that's why it's here.
