Just noting, if you have self-made scripts to perform Dynamic DNS with a Nameserver/Provider of your choosing, the following sequence of events happens: * Curl or WGET a page such as https://ifconfig.io/ip to get your external WAN IP. * Parse the response (if needed) * Shunt it up to
TL;DR: Install docker AND dockerd Unfortunately the Wiki documentation appears out of date for installing Docker as a container host in OpenWRT. The majority of the documentation is fine. However, the instructions tell a user to download 'docker-ce' with opkg, which is no longer possible and presumably out-of-date. The
If you're reading this your phone has started to chugg hard. The fix for me was to go to Settings -> System -> Ram Boost Disable it. Whatever it is, it aggressively attacks the performance of apps and causes the slow down and lagginess you're likely experiencing. One whole day

This week I got to enjoy going to InfoSecurity 2018 and BSidesLondon 2018. Both of these events are something I look forward to every year - they're probably the best of their kind each year. They're two distinctly different events though. What are they? For the last few years, InfoSec
Recently I've come across several websites which have (for some non-obvious reason...) decided to stand Cloudflare's protection services in front of their own website. Maybe for DDoS protection, maybe to filter down requests or raise security somehow, doesn't really matter. The website loads in little pieces with huge gaps in
To help diagnose network problems and/or tell users what speed the network attached to the Pi is running at, the Raspberry Pi devs have used the lights to signify whether 10/100Mb or 1000Mb is being used by the interface.
