I’ve always thought of JAWUG as a network lab the size of a city.
But now there’s DN42, which is describes itself as,
dn42 is a big dynamic VPN, which employs Internet technologies (BGP, whois database, DNS, etc). Participants connect to each other using network tunnels (GRE, OpenVPN, Tinc, IPsec) and exchange routes thanks to the Border Gateway Protocol.
I’ve joined DN42, and gone a little crazy with it. So far I have nodes in the US, Ireland, Australia and South Africa. This means I can interconnect with other DN42 members anywhere in the world, having resilience against failures.
I’ll probably be adding more to that, but my first step will be to upgrade my Australian node to something with a bit more bandwidth.
Many people asked me for a video explaining what the Xiaomi Mi Smart Home gateway does.
I tore it apart in the last video without explaining to people what it is. So I’ve made a follow up video to give a very brief overview of the functionality of the Kit, and provide a few links for English resources.
A few months back, I got my hands on a Raspberry Pi. As soon as i got it, I realised I didn’t have a use for it.
Then a week back, I had a pair of MyVu Solo’s. Sure, they’re not exactly the latest and greatest in Personal Media Viewers, but they would serve the purpose of displaying information.
The problem though, is (apart from looking ridiculous), they completely occluded my vision when I put them on.
So I’ve hacked them apart, and am in the process of turning them into a monocular display.
Here’s how I did it (and as far as I can tell, I’m the only person who didn’t destroy bits in the process)
