Google Nest WiFi review
Posted on 19-Oct-2020 14:59

The avalanche of new smartphones, tablets, laptops and assorted "smart devices" (including but not limited to TVs, speakers, lights, fridge, coffee machine, heat pump, blinds, washing machines and the list can go on and on) in our homes require, pretty much all of them, Internet access. This is done mostly through wireless connections - after all who wants to spend time with ugly cables running around the house, not enough ports and poor management?...

Install Unifi Protect on ODroid C2
Posted by BarTender on 2-Aug-2020 08:10
I had a conversation with someone a while ago about Unifi Protect and the fact it only works on a Cloudkey. Since a Cloudkey is just an 64bit ARM I thought I would try installing it on an ODroid C2. This is completely unsupported and who knows if it will stop working in the future... so YMMV. Insta...

LiPo Charging
Posted by xpd on 19-Feb-2020 18:39
Since I now have a new toy that uses LiPo batteries, and came with a charger, I thought I'd better figure out how to use it. Its not as straight forward as the old days of plugging in the 7.2V battery into a charger and leave it for hours on end to get 5mins run time. But thankfully, I found a vid...
