datAshur Pro review
Posted on 4-Apr-2017 15:29

As far as data security goes, most USB flash drives are rated pretty-low. You see, security can only be strong when it's easy to use and people won't go through lots of procedures to get a half-good experience - even when data security is at risk.

My last post (Here), showed the reading of temperatures via raspberry Pi. The last post it was via a Bluetooth dongle and a BlueMaestro temp disc. Once you've taken the temperature, or other sensor readings, it's now time to do something with it. My Comms cabinet is in an external cupboard and wal...
