The most frequently viewed page on this site is Signs you're a bad programmer, which has also now been published on dead trees by Hacker Monthly, and I think that behoves me to write its antithesis.

Make Your Own Wi-Fi Hotspot - Testing Development Websites on Mobiles and Tablets Make Your Own Wi-Fi Hotspot - Testing Development Websites on Mobiles and Tablets Often you need to test a website on an tablet device such as an iPad using a local development machine’s web server. For whatever reason the available Wi-Fi when developing your site may be on another subnet or network entirely to you development machine (such as in an office environment). Situations like these call for a bit of creative thinking and a different approach, so if this is a problem you face here’s my take on a possible solution.

Build Your Own Tiny Wi-Fi Camera
s “Internet of Things” Camera March 13, 2012 AT 12:11 am Here’s our Arduino based “Internet of Things” camera. It’s a simple remote monitoring using the Eye-Fi wireless SD card and Adafruit Data Logging Shield for Arduino. The Eye-Fi card is a tiny wireless memory card. It stores photos and fits inside a camera just like a regular SD card, but also has built-in WiFi transceiver that can upload images to your computer, smartphone or to various photo-sharing sites. We use one here when taking pictures for our tutorials — it’s a great timesaver, eliminating the extra USB transfer step that’s otherwise necessary.
This is a simple project that uses NE-2 neon bulbs in a group of 'relaxation oscillators.' In essence, an RC circuit charges a capacitor at a rate determined by a resistor and discharges the cap though a neon bulb to start the process over. The effect is a blinking lamp. With a group of these oscillators you get multiple blinking bulbs and the effect is similar to fireflies. Put them into a jar and Bob's your uncle. Fireflies in a Jar

Setup a DIY Network ‘DropBox’ (aka PirateBox) PirateBox allows you to quickly setup a mobile wireless file sharing network. Basically, it’s a P2P file-sharing device that can turn any space into a temporary, but secure wireless file sharing network. Multiple users within range of the device can connect to the network without any log-in and immediately start downloading or uploading files via their computers or mobile devices. As it is not connected to the internet, the system is secure from outside attacks. Also, users remain anonymous as no user logs are generated. The PirateBox is made up of a wireless router and light-weight Linux server connected to a USB hard drive.
