Its the Post maaan!

Gosh! Its been over 12 months since I posted anything.

How time flies!

Since the last post what has happened?

1. I changed roles at the place I work. I have been an ICT Project Officer for almost 12 months, working on the W7 upgrade path.

2. We have sold the old house and moved into a new build, closer to my place of work. Infact its slap bang in the middle of mine and Kate's places of work. - About 4 mins drive in the car or 30 mins walk. I'm getting a bike I think.

3. Because of the sale of the house, we no longer have a conservatory. This is the biggest kicker of the move. Down an extra room. Oh well. Onwards and upwards. Maybe we will have another one built on the new house in the future?

4. We have changed cars too. Out with the old Kia Picanto, in with a Renault Captur.

Thats' about it I think. :)

Monday, Monday so good for you!

This coming Monday, the conservatory is finally started! - Gosh its taken plenty of months to get the ball rolling, but we had to wait for the blue tits to fledge! - They went weeks ago, so now we can get started!

Woo hoo!!!! - Extra space here we go!

Excited

So we have just put down the order for our new conservatory!

Soon we will have a room to chill out in and watch the birdies in the garden!

Lofty heights

So this weekend I took it upon myself to put flooring down in the loft, to get some extra storage space!



Here is the result of all my hard (10 hours) work.

Still some more to do (IE move the rest of the insulation and install more flooring/storage) but I am happy with what I got done.

In the same day I also took the car for a service! - I must have had my undies on over my trollies that day! - Although, if I was Superman, I would not be feeling this rough the day after. All my bits ache and my back is sore! :(

Worth it tho.

A box for some pirates

My latest creation ....

Piratebox, the free and anonymous sharing server.

ta da...

There are loads of links on the web for this sort of device and it caught my eye a while ago. A quick search on flea-bay sourced all the equipment needed (Except for the housing, which I had from the early 2000s) - Thought I would give it a go and the end result is exceptional!

http:// http://wiki.daviddarts.com/PirateBox_DIY

This guy created the original pirate box software base on https://openwrt.org/. Hackable network routers based linux OS.

Here is my effort.


Small TP-Link WR703N usb router (Blue), 64GB lexar USB memory stick, micro usb power cable (Black) - I also have a DIY battery pack assembled for mobile use, but for now its static and staying in one place.

As you can see I made the housing for it (its not the best made in the world but I dont care :[] )

So what does the enclosure look like from the outside?


A fitting enclosure me thinks?

Would you know that a book on the bookshelf hides an anonymous wireless network?

ha ha

Wonder where I could deposit it now?
