If you're stuck with a Belkin WeMo where you had unfortunately upgraded the firmware, alas, the only way I've found to get OpenWRT running on it is to break out the soldering iron. Unless another vulnerability is found... If you're running firmware version WeMo_WW_2.00.2176.PVT or lower, check out The Easy Way.
Vulnerabilities aside, the firmware (even the latest version) on the Belkin WeMo is just plain flaky. I've had multiple issues where the device appears to just "hang", flashing an orange error light if it temporarily loses its wireless connection (which seems to be around once a week). Fed up, I decided it was time to grant them a new lease of life, by reflashing them with OpenWRT.
If you've just done a site restructure or migration to Drupal 8, you will inevitably need to redirect pages from your old URL scheme to however you've structured the new site. In Drupal 8, the easiest way is to monitor the database log, filtered with "page not found".
Many of these hits however will come from bots scanning your site. But to tell whether it's a random bot, Google, or likely to be a real user, we need to inspect the User-Agent header. This means digging into your log files. Wouldn't it be more convenient if you had a quick & easy way to see these details?
I've got a cheap Lumia 530 I use as my dev phone. Having recently upgraded my daily driver Lumia 925 to Windows 10, it was time to upgrade my dev phone too.
The Lumia 530 isn't officially supported anymore — and probably never will be. Regardless, it's still possible to run W10M 10586.164 on your Lumia 530!
Disappointed by the requirement of the Windows 10 Mobile SDK for SLAT, I decided to try to find another way to kick off with W10M development.
Here's a solution to get the Windows 10 Mobile Emulator working on Windows 7, without Hyper-V, and without SLAT.
Who knew that the humble folk here in Canberra would be the quickest off the mark to get involved with the, national broadband network? To be exact, Gungahlin residents and business owners are showing the fastest take up rate in the whole of the country. More than 4000 have already signed up according to Communications Minister Stephen Conroy.
Chevrolet unveiled the new "C7" Corvette today, taking the world's most affordable supercar to new heights. Donning almost as many vents as a Lamborghini, the new Corvette is equipped with a whopping 6.2L V8, achieving 0-100km/h in around 4 seconds.
There's currently an Infographic being shared around on Facebook, created by The Australia Institute, a misleadingly named political lobby group. It's a great example about how careful selection of statistics, combined with social media, can be an effective way to push an agenda (whether political or otherwise).
I've started getting a lot of emails in German lately, but Mutt hasn't been displaying them properly. For non-us-ascii characters (e.g. ß), it'd either show \223, or a '?'. This was really beginning to bug me.
Occasionally, you see massive lotto jackpots. On New Years Eve, the pot was around the $30 million mark. The higher the jackpot gets, the more tickets are sold.
It's a very strange form of gambling. Most people probably pay around $20 for a lotto ticket, and have a 1 in 2,036,265 chance of winning the jackpot. And even when you do, it's likely you'll have to share it with a number of other people. In the New Years Eve 2010 draw, 19 people shared the Division 1 prize!
