So my newest edition to the smart home family is a Roborock s6. It took me a little while to research all of the mid tier robot vacuum cleaners, as currently there is a lot of variety.Read More

This online module will provide you with an understanding and practical experience of cloud technology and the web technology which underpins it, as well as the role that these have in the provision of modern mobile applications. You will gain both a technical and business perspective of the advantages, problems and risks of using these technologies. A number of case studies demonstrate the application of the technology in different contexts, such as start-ups, established organisations and collaborations.Read More
A little over a year ago I signed up for this Offensive Security Certified Professional (OSCP) course. But you may have noticed I have not posted my review or my certificate.Read More
I think it is now time to start this course from eLearnSecurity. The Penetration Testing Professional (PTP) is a well know course which I have been putting off but have now decided to start.
I will add to this post as I progress through the course. I believe that it will not be too difficult, last year I took the Offensive Security Certified Professional (OSCP) training. But I did not do the exam as I still lack skills in privilege escalation.Read More
So for the last few months I have in my spare time bean trying to find a way to run a PIR sensor on a battery.
I remember reading a news article a few months ago where Amazon, Google and Apple agreed to find a working standard for IOT devices. Lets face it currently you buy a Philips Hue bulb so you have to by the Philips hue hub same for IKEA, google or if you are really not to caring a Chinese hub.Read More
So in the last attempt to create a low powered PIR sensor I failed due to the power requirements that the D1 mini needed. previous
My 18650 battery started at 4.2V the D1 mini needed 5v same with the PIR sensor, as the battery was depleted the voltage was also decreased, so the whole project was a little unreliable.Read More
The aim of this module is to help you become a computational thinker. Formulating a problem for efficient solution by computers is an extremely important skill. In this module, you will hone this skill: exploring a range of computing concepts; applying these to a variety of problems; and, in the process, becoming familiar with the popular Python programming language. This is the module for you if you are specialising in computing or if – whatever your field – you need to understand both the power and the limitations of computing. Though the focus is on the underlying ideas, you will also need to work with some mathematical concepts and notation.Read More
Well this is fun. The course material is good but expects you to also have a good attitude. There are some hints, but not these are not enough to root machines alone.Read More
Using a D1 mini to go to deep sleep and wake up when motion is detected. On boot a message is sent via MQTT to node-red.Read More
I have decided not to fully review this course. It was an introduction into the world of penetration testing and it was a fun and enjoyable intro . The only problem I had this was that I managed to complete it over 1 weekend.Read More
