    Wifi repeater/range extender

    I have a Victorian era house with extremely thick walls. The fibre connection goes to the lounge where the D-Link router does a fine job of supplying wifi to the back of the house, which we gutted and made open plan. But connectivity in the front is poor, due to the thick walls, and that...

    DIY Paradox alarm: add another wireless sensor

    A delightful gentleman (of whom I have had the pleasure of meeting, once) has taken the habit of scaling my wall and testing if the car doors are unlocked.

    I have a 2005 Toyota Hilux Raider D4D. The handle on the tailgate started becoming loose a while ago, but after a trip to the Cederberg one of the two bolts that holds it in place (from the inside) was vibrated out (the road between Algeria and Stadstal was pretty bad - though we passed a...
