Without a Trace: Turn Your Flash Drive into a Portable Privacy Toolkit

Without a Trace: Turn Your Flash Drive into a Portable Privacy Toolkit
@parabellum2000: Here, Here! While I might get frustrated from time to time with the limitations of web access at my school (I have to download a YouTube video from home and bring it in if I want to use it in a lesson), I understand why they exist and, frankly, I work too hard and too much to have time to putz around with tunneling through the firewall. Not to mention that I like my job, I like the IT guys, and they know I know what I'm doing. I wouldn't be surprised, if a student set up a SSH tunnel on a library computer, if they came to me to ask if I knew anything about it. Even when I worked behind a desk entering orders all day, there were ways to make it more interesting, and I was able to keep myself busy adding value for the company.

Top 100 Network Security Tools Vanish: Enhancing the Privacy of the Web with Self-Destructing Data BEAM Heads 101 First let's examine how the HLO operates, without using the IN signal, behaving like a classic CMOS astable oscillator. The oscillator consists of 2 inverters with the input of inverter A serving as a summing node for several signals. As can be seen, a 5M potentiometer (R1) is connected from the output of inverter A back to it's own input. Because of the signal inversion, this is DC negative feedback, which tends to drive the input voltage of inverter A towards its 1/2V+ threshold.

Matt Cutts: Gadgets, Google, and SEO Cindy Cutts, my wife and best friend, passed away earlier this week. While I was traveling for work recently, Cindy went to visit her family in Omaha, Nebraska. On Sunday, while enjoying time with family, Cindy started having trouble breathing. Her family quickly called 911 and paramedics took Cindy to the hospital, but Cindy lost and never regained consciousness. She passed away on Monday. Cindy didn’t want any callouts on my blog, so I always just referred to her as my wife. Cindy enjoyed falling asleep to Parks and Rec. Cindy and I knew each other for 23 years and we were married for 18 years, which is no small thing. If anyone wants to send flowers, the service is at Heafey-Hoffmann-Dworak-Cutler at 7805 W Center Rd in Omaha on Saturday, March 10th, starting at 3pm. For the people who didn’t get to meet her, Cindy looked like a movie star: She loved hanging with her family, like her sister and niece and nephew: She had the best smile and amazing green eyes:

Fluorometer Fluorometer A fluorometer or fluorimeter is a device used to measure parameters of fluorescence: its intensity and wavelength distribution of emission spectrum after excitation by a certain spectrum of light.[1] These parameters are used to identify the presence and the amount of specific molecules in a medium. Modern fluorometers are capable of detecting fluorescent molecule concentrations as low as 1 part per trillion. Fluorescence analysis can be orders of magnitude more sensitive than other techniques. Components and Design[edit] A simplistic design of the components of a fluorometer Typically fluorometers utilize a double beam. Within the machine the transducer that detects fluorescence created from the upper beam is located a distance away from the sample and at a 90-degree angle from the incident, upper beam. Sources for fluorometers are often dependant on the type of sample being tested. Glass and silica cells are often the vessels in which the sample is placed. Uses[edit]

The PC Repair Toolkit in your Pocket: Boot CD on a USB Stick It has been around for a long time, but I still know a lot of techs who don’t know about it. Ultimate Boot CD includes memory checkers, CPU stress testers, system information tools, boot managers and tools for hard drives, partitions, password resets, and more. For a full list, check out the UBCD page. Typically, this is burned onto an ISO and you boot using a CD. The directions on how to do this are courtesy of pendrivelinux: Download the Ultimate Boot CD iso file and place it into its own directoryDownload the UBCDfix.exe file and run it, extracting into the above folder From this folder click fixubcd.bat and follow the instructions Move the contents of the /dir/USBUBCD folder to your USB drive From your USB drive, run makeboot.bat to make it bootable That’s it! After booting from the drive you’ll see the UBCD menu: Some great things I’ve used the UBCD to do: So give it a shot if you are the type of person who is always called upon to fix people’s PCs!

e-Health Sensor Platform for Arduino and Raspberry Pi [Biometric / Medical Applications] This information can be used to monitor in real time the state of a patient or to get sensitive data in order to be subsequently analysed for medical diagnosis. Biometric information gathered can be wirelessly sent using any of the 6 connectivity options available: Wi-Fi, 3G, GPRS, Bluetooth, 802.15.4 and ZigBee depending on the application. If real time image diagnosis is needed a camera can be attached to the 3G module in order to send photos and videos of the patient to a medical diagnosis center. Data can be sent to the Cloud in order to perform permanent storage or visualized in real time by sending the data directly to a laptop or Smartphone. iPhone and Android applications have been designed in order to easily see the patient's information. Pulse and Oxygen in Blood (SPO2) SPO2 sensor features Pulse oximetry a noninvasive method of indicating the arterial oxygen saturation of functional hemoglobin. Connecting the sensor Connect the module in the e-Health sensor platform. Initializing by

Which VPN Providers Really Take Anonymity Seriously? As detailed in yesterday’s article, if a VPN provider carries logs of their users’ activities the chances of them being able to live up to their claim of offering an anonymous service begins to decrease rapidly. There are dozens of VPN providers, many of which carry marketing on their web pages which suggests that the anonymity of their subscribers is a top priority. But is it really? Do their privacy policies stand up to scrutiny? Over the past two weeks TorrentFreak contacted some of the leading, most-advertised, and most talked about VPN providers in the file-sharing and anonymity space. 1. 2. This article does not attempt to consider the actual quality of service offered by any listed provider, nor does it consider whether any service is good value for money. P2P Supporting VPN providers BTguard Response to Q1: “It’s technically unfeasible for us to maintain log files with the amount of connections we route,” BTguard explain. Response to Q2: “The jurisdiction is Canada. TorGuard 1. 2.

Arduino Tutorial - Lesson 4 - Serial communication and playing with data Ah, Arduino, I remember when you were just crawling around and blinking LEDs. Now you're ready to learn how to speak! In this lesson we'll learn how to use the Serial Library to communicate from the Arduino board back to the computer over the USB port. Then we'll learn how to manipulate numbers and data. For this lesson we won't be using the shield, so simply remove it (keeping the mood light LEDs on it you'd like). Libraries are great places, and not yet illegal in the United States! Software Libraries are very similar. The library we will be using is the Serial Library, which allows the Arduino to send data back to the computer: Serial may sound like a tasty breakfast food, but its actually quite different. Information is passed back & forth between the computer and Arduino by, essentially, setting a pin high or low. This is as good as Microsoft Visio can do, yay! (Now, people who are all geeked-out will probably get angry at this point because I'm simplifying things. So...click it!

Is Usenet Safer than BitTorrent? Shhh... Stick to bittorrent kid. Usenets the devil and I highly recommend against it. Geez. Thanks for the unneeded publicity. Flagged seriously? Good lord thank you for saying this. All this "the first rule of Usenet" BS has gone on for decades - give it up people, EVERYONE ALREADY KNOWS ABOUT USENET. Sorry "everyone" doesn't know about USENET. Like I mentioned to someone else in the same thread - the only barriers to everyone using usenet the same way everyone uses Bittorrent are inconvenience and cost - the fact that it's not easy, and most ISPs don't support binary newsgroups anymore. Sourceless numbers about p2p file sharing (numbers that clearly don't include BitTorrent) are beside the point, and make the assumption that the only use for Usenet is piracy, which I think is an argument you're not trying to make, are you? The percentage of the U.S. The number supplied pertains to sharing music, but one can safely assume the numbers hold for other types of file sharing.

ArduinoShields Shields are boards that can be plugged on top of the Arduino PCB extending its capabilities. The different shields follow the same philosophy as the original toolkit: they are easy to mount, and cheap to produce. Xbee The Arduino Xbee shield allows multiple Arduino boards to communicate wirelessly over distances up to 100 feet (indoors) or 300 feet (outdoors) using the Maxstream Xbee Zigbee module. details Motor Control v1.1 The Arduino Motor shield allows you to control DC motors and read encoders. details More Shields For more shields, see this list on the playground. Making Shields If you'd like to make your own shield, you may want to start with the Eagle files for an existing shield.
