5/08/2019 12:39:00 PM 0
This is a short recap of what's needed to set up a regular backup of a Synology shared folder onto an USB drive plugged on an Asus router (running with Asuswrt Merlin).

The information needed for this specific operation is generally scattered in different places, so I regrouped everything while it's still fresh from my recent actions.

What to expect when you buy a bunch of cheap U3 rated memory cards for 5 bucks and they arrive in a plastic bag?

I tested them to find out if the absence of a shiny secure blister really makes a difference.

This could as well be titled "My first steps in 3D printing" even though the long month waiting for my printer to arrive gave me time to document, watch, learn and prepare for The Day.

Easythreed Nano 3D Printer on sale at Gearbest

3/18/2019 03:54:00 PM 0
The Easythreed Nano is an entry level 3D Printer usually selling around 150$ and way over 300$ when branded as Polaroid P2C10002!

The Nano has a decent reputation as a 3D printer for beginners. Even then, I was not sure if it was the best pick in that price range...
But it is now on Flash Sale at Gearbest (99$ at time of writing!) and I hardly see anything beating that!

Gearbest Easythreed Nano

Note: the white version is available at the same price. (I took the orange so I can still make the difference with my bread maker.)

I don't expect any side windows included for that price, but they are not necessary and can be purchased separately.

Expect a review here soon!

Many smart watches now include a blood pressure sensor and some even measure your oxygen saturation like real oximeters.

But how do these cheap watches compare with FDA-approved devices?

This is the first part where I try a watch claiming to monitor the SpO2 level (Oxygen saturation level)
