Get back online at restaurants that boot you off the Wi-Fi after 30 minutes
Authored by: xhinter on Jul 30, '13 12:31:27PM
I concur with unfed. Alternatives:

1. Put these aliases in your profile to randomize and restore your MAC
alias chrandmac='sudo ifconfig en0 ether $(openssl rand -hex 6 | sed '\''s/\(..\)/\1:/g; s/.$//'\'')'
alias bia='sudo ifconfig en0 ether 00:11:22:33:44:55'
where 00:11:22:33:44:55 is the burn-in-address of your interface

2. Use an applescript
do shell script "ifconfig en0 ether 00:11:22:33:44:55" with administrator privileges
NB You could go further and include the commands in 1. in an applescript if you figure out the escaping all with a nice dialog box to randomize your MAC or reset it to the BIA.
