    Load-shedding vs water-shedding...

    We have a 10L drinking water tank, and a geyser full of water, so if our water goes down we still have some for a few days of drinking and cooking. And it's easy enough to go somewhere else to get more, to fill up some 5L bottles or to go take a shower at friend/family homes. Lack of electricity...

I haven't looked into it yet, but perhaps there is a way to allow only certain devices access. Otherwise, I will have to stick to good...

    Synology DS220j NAS Review

Having never owned a NAS before, the most I knew about it was what the acronym stood for, and that it was like having a hard drive connected to the internet. It is a very cool and useful gift, so I decided...

    Apple just sucks - full stop.

    I have a little iPod shuffle. I use it just fine without iTunes. I have a python script that I downloaded online, written by some awesome dude who hates iTunes as much as I do. It turns the iPod into a music-playing USB drive. You can drag and drop your music to the iPod like any other USB...

    Hey all, I am looking for a good quality but relatively basic DSLR for a family member. We only need the body since we are going to be using a Spotting Scope permanently instead of a lens. We will get the scope adapter ring once we have the camera body. We're open to any brand, but we're...

    iPhone Accident!

    I tell you, it's a conspiracy. They made the phone from that easily-breakable glass on purpose, because they KNOW that people drop cellphones. You take the thing everywhere with you so it's often at the highest risk of.. everything. Being dropped, smashed, ridden over, stolen, dunked in water...
