Historical Technology Books - 74 in a series - Cipher and secret letter and telegraph code, with Hogg's improvements (1884)

 

INTRODUCTION

This Secret Code may be used by any oue. It is so perfect that no message written by it can possibly be read without knowing the particular keyword us3d. In most of the Cipher systems a mere changing of the order of the alphabet, or certain signs for certain letters, has been used, and in consequence of the same letter being always represented by the same cipher, an expert could easily read any message. In this system the constant change ot cipher for every letter makes the message perfectly secret. By its use any number of persons may write the same message, and each be unintelligible save for those intended. It is very simple, and with ordinary care there can be no mistake or misunderstanding. Your message can be written in any language.

Follow Adafruit’s tutorial on setting up Onion Pi and you’re on your way to a peaceful anonymous browsing experience. Tor is an onion routing service – every internet packet goes through 3 layers of relays before going to your destination. This makes it much harder for the server you are accessing (or anyone snooping on your Internet use) to figure out who you are and where you are coming from.

How to Build a Raspberry Pi-Powered Digital Photo Frame via Tom's Hardware

A digital photo frame is a small screen that can sit on your desk in your office or in your kitchen displaying your favorite pictures, changing at regular intervals. The first commercial digital photo frame was introduced in the 1990s shortly after the digital camera. Digital photo frames made a comeback in popularity during 2020, perhaps because people were staying at home more. In this tutorial, we’ll turn our Raspberry Pi into a digital photo frame using MagicMirror and the GooglePhotos module. Please note, we will skip installation of the 2-way mirror in the original Magic Mirror project. Consider this project, “Magic Mirror, without the mirror.” Read How to Build a Raspberry Pi-Powered Digital Photo Frame via Tom's Hardware An interesting link found among my daily reading
