    How to set up vpn server on my home pc so I can connect to it anywhere?

    I use wireguard on a rasp pi 4. That way I do not have to expose any of my services to the internet, but still have access. Install is easy, I used piVPN and selected wireguard (over openVPN). The pi needs a static IP so you can open it up via router/firewall settings, but then that is the...

    Dell H625 Color Laser AIO $175, your inbox may have -30/100 or -50/200 today

    Received my printer yesterday, I was not home and FedEx left it at the door. Looks like the driver was smart enough to use a hand truck for the 70lbs box. Printer is up and running, Win 10 machines and mobile devices found it before I even got to them. Tested scan via feeder and single sided...

    Battery-Powered Plane Completes First Test Flight in Australia

    maybe but not when you factor in having to drive to airport, taxi to takeoff, taxi after landing and drive to final destination. Furthermore, a VTOL aircraft's wings will be designed for flight only as opposed to takeoff and landing as well as flight. Stipulated that the cost of a VTOL...

    Battery-Powered Plane Completes First Test Flight in Australia

    There are always going to be trade offs, but if the idea of this aircraft is battery powered and can only achieve short flight times, then VTOL is going to be a better option when it comes to daily commutes and safety.

    Battery-Powered Plane Completes First Test Flight in Australia

    This does not excite me: the charging time and flight times make it inconvenient. I would have liked to see solar panels on the wings, so long as they are efficient enough to extend flight time. I do not see this replacing cars to ease traffic congestion because you still need an airport to...

    Microsoft Says It’s Time to Kill Off the Password
