Today, I read an article on the TOR routing service. The article was a piece of sensationalist, badly researched, idiotic crap. The article accompanied a television show in which several people speak on the The Onion Router. These people have little to say on what TOR actually is, but they seem to have it clear Read more »

The hosting provider I use offers a backup server. It’s very reliable, but it only supports the SFTP and RSYNC protocols. That’s all fine for regular usage, but when your backup script breaks somehow, and you need to start fresh, SFTP is not an option. Deleting millions of files across can take days. So, what’s Read more »

This app worked wonders in putting his baby to sleep by playing white noise across his android phone’s speaker. apparently, there’s a lot of people that use white noise either to fall asleep, or to reach a Read more »
