JIVR bike – Folding | Electric | Chainless Test Ride

All things electric catch my eye and I was looking at bikes for commuting to work and to potter around nearer to home, folding was a must for getting on the tube.

So not even a year after I purchased my OnePlus 5, I now have the opportunity to get the OnePlus 6.

Edimax RG21S AC2600 MU-MIMO Gigabit Router/Access Point for £64.98@ebuyer.com

So while working on a project for work I needed to test cheap and easy access of a machine and like all things IT related, nothing ever goes smoothly (especially when you have VirginMedia SuperHub3 in the mix). I was thinking I could install the VPN service as part of server 2012, use a dynamic DNS client, enable port forwarding on the superhub and be done with it all. Not so, after failing at every turn I narrowed down the issue to it being the ports I wanted open and passed not…
