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.

Television. Been around since the 1930's, with an evolution that has been interesting and non stop.

These days electronic devices running out of battery can be a major first world problem, so...

The Air New Zealand Auckland International Lounge was revamped and opened up again in 2015. Last week I had the opportunity to try out this lounge before my flight to Guangzhou, China, transiting in Hong Kong, travelling on an Air New Zealand Boeing 777-200.

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...
