But I can't find the presentation or any mention of it since. I've tried reading the source code for clues, but frankly not being a programmer means I'm just reading Greek. I now have my own WLAN to setup and want to use the special secret Kismet's own SSID, so what was it?

Many thanks for the reply and a very Happy Christmas.

To be honest its not impossible I dreamnt the whole thing, so I'll just pick an SSID something like "tinyWLANnothingtoseehere".

Thanks again.
