This is the second video in my series on DIY Electronics and Home Automation. I am looking at what you'll need for your lab and how you go about setting it up.
Besides computer stuff, one of my hobbies is playing around with electronics. Having not done anything for a couple of years I decided that it's time to get back into the subject. As I work my way through what I want to do, I am making a video series to share it with everyone.
It's been a few weeks since I really had chance to work on anything for the website. Which is not to say that I have given up with it, just that I have been somewhat busy with other bits and pieces in my life. What I haven't been able to avoid though is the sight of how messy the comments sections now looks.
I contributed earlier to a disucssion on an article in The Register on dealing with malware caused as a result of security vulnerabilities in Java. The article discusses how to go about cleaning up the various pieces of Malware downloaded and requires the use of multiple security tools covered in 12 steps. As I and others suggested at this point, given an infection of this magnitude, going for a clean-up should be the last resort.
I was sad to read this morning that Neil Armstrong has passed away at the age of 82. It has however been suggested that he would not be amused by all this attention being lavished on him since he considered himself a "nerdy engineer" doing a job for his country. His family said "Neil Armstrong was also a reluctant American hero who always believed he was just doing his job."
He was more than that though, he was an inspiration to millions and for that reason alone he deserves all the praise and admiration he has received.
Unlike the 71 articles that have come before this one, this is the first that has required no manual intervention in the database in order to publish it. In short, I have finished the core development work on CallamMcMillan.com version 6 after a development effort of nearly a year.
While there is still plenty more to do, I can at least see the light at the end of the tunnel and can now focus more on producing new content for it rather than coding the functionality this website needs.
I'm planning an article looking at how company networks evolve from a single computer into multi-site networks with tens if not hundreds of thousands of devices connected. While looking at that I was writing about redundancy in network design. This reminded me of a classic mistake in network design which is what I am going to here. It doesn't matter how well designed your network is if it's all plugged into a single 13A socket. This article therefore looks at network design in a wider sense and how the infrastructure should best support it.
Want to put Cisco network icons into your Visio document or Powerpoint? Want to model Cisco equipment in Visio but can't be bothered to draw it out? Well don't worry because Cisco has done it for you!
From time to time I get asked about making a website for somebody's business, usually along with "my [Insert relative or friend here] is doing it for £40." In this article I explain why this isn't actually the case, why buying cheap doesn't work when it comes to websites and what to expect from a web design project.
