3D printed Newton 2100 Battery….TBC

A good friend and I were stilling in the office one day reminiscing about the “old” cool technology we remembers in our younger days. Over a few days and some ebay’ing, there was an Apple Newton 2100 winging its way 😀 When the Newton 2×00 was originally introduced, it came standard with 4 x AA sized alkaline batteries that were loaded into a battery tray. Alkaline, rechargeable NiCd or NiMH batteries may be used. An optional rechargeable NiMH pack could also be purchased. Sometime after the initial introduction, things got swapped the…

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.

Mount remote ftp directory host locally into Linux file system using curlftpfs

Morning, just a quick post, while working  on a project for work I needed to get meta data from an FTP site, I didn’t want to download the while site and the tool we are working on at would can scan File Server but not FTP directly…..a little but of a pickle until I stumbled on curlftpfs for linux.

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…
