How to Build a Computer from Scratch: The Complete Guide

How to Build a Computer from Scratch: The Complete Guide
a semantical argument, i'm sure, but this article does not really talk about building a computer from scratch, but rather from components. when i was a kid my dad and i sort of built a tv "from scratch" but in reality all we did was collect thousands of bits and some solder. built the case from particle board and white formica too.. we built each circuit board up from the individual parts... i honestly doubt anyone here would have the patience to try that with a computer, but kudos to whomever might be so inclined... 8/08/11 3:18pm

The MQTT Connection MQTT stands for MQ Telemetry Transport. It is a publish/subscribe, extremely simple and lightweight messaging protocol, designed for constrained devices and low-bandwidth, high-latency or unreliable networks. The design principles are to minimise network bandwidth and device resource requirements whilst also attempting to ensure reliability and some degree of assurance of delivery. These principles also turn out to make the protocol ideal of the emerging “machine-to-machine” (M2M) or “Internet of Things” world of connected devices, and for mobile applications where bandwidth and battery power are at a premium.
