It feels like a very long time since I last posted about the powerwall! So where are you at? I hear you asking. I have two words for you. ‘Cell Fusing’. Yep, that’s right, I am still fusing individual cells.
It’s a Sunday…and it’s raining! So why not revisit one of the old projects and see if we could make some improvements!
I have never really been a Podcast listener, however, in the last 6 months, one particular podcast caught my interest. This particular podcast titled “Darknet Diaries” was able to hold my interest for more than a few minutes.
Finally some time for an UPDATE! The short story…I finally processed enough 18650 cells to start the build. For the long story, keep reading and check out the video. In this post, I am going to walk through some of the bits and pieces I have had to gather and sort out prior to starting the cabinet install.
Recently, I have had a few requests for a “How To” configure the TVheadend server. This article will cover off on the basics to get you up and running. If you want to review the hardware requirements then check out the build post here.
Why has the blog been so quiet I hear you ask…..Well…I started work on a DIY Powerwall from recycled laptop batteries. Yes, you heard correctly, I have started building a Tesla style power-wall?from 18650 batteries.
I have a projector out in the theatre room, however, this same room does not have any coax run for TV reception. Nor does the projector have a tuner for Digital TV. Thus the idea for the RPi TV streamer!
Its small, its cheap, its easy and its suited to the DIY Maker. The Raspberry Pi has revolutionised the internet of things making computers and programming accessible for everyone around the world. This is a brief history or snapshot of the legendary hardware.
On our recent trip/honeymoon to Koh Samui, I thought I would conjure my inner photographer. It’s fair to say that I still have a lot to learn. The camera I had was a Canon 80D.
Our resident electronics expert, Andrew has been busy in the man cave this weekend. After reporting some dampness inside his house he decided to take matters into his own hands. The outcome: ‘Inspecto?Roboto’!
The GL-inet range of travel routers are sold with the understanding that we can use them as more than just a router.
If like me, you travel a lot, then having a solid travel router that allows me to work on the move securely and with anonymity is a necessity. The GL-MiFi router has proven to be a solid and reliable unit
So you purchased a Raspberry Pi ZERO Wireless and like me, did not realize that you would have no way to actually access the small form factor computer, because it does not have any standard USB ports.
Building a virtual machine can be a bit of a daunting task. However, in this video, we use ‘Virtualbox’ to make it super simple.
In this scenario we want to use a mini travel router to act as a VPN client so that when we connect any device to it we know the data will be safe and traverse via a VPN.
So it seems that I can power a Ubiquiti Bullet and Rocket directly with DC 12v.
On a recent trip to Kalbarri, we decided that the town was WAY to busy and we should try and go up river. We found some cracker spots to camp and put up the drone.
Just last week I was setting up IP cameras at home and connecting the irrigation controller to the network and I was opening my network up to the internet WAY to much. (I was port forwarding all kinds of ports.) So to mitigate opening up to the internet so much I decided to setup a VPN tunnel that I could easily connect to which would allow me access into my local network.
